Duty of care

Wherever you work your employer has a duty of care to you and must protect you from health risks in the workplace. This includes preventing you from being exposed to dangerous substances or unsafe working conditions.

If these health conditions caused from these risks mean you have to give up work or if you lose your job on medical grounds, you could be able to make a claim against your employer.
