I suffered from work-related stress for 3 years and had been off sick 6 times because of it.The employer never wanted to reduce my workload or stop drama queens from gossiping around the office. I had 3 times more workload to do than anyone elseOn the last day, managers forced me to finish all the work in 2hr time that was even impossible for others to do in a week. On that day I suffered a nervous breakdown and was admitted to hospital for a month.
Later I was diagnosed with more than one illness triggered by stress. I am now disabled and unable to go back to work. The employer wanted this to happen so hat I quit my job.

Hi there, I am pretty sure I discussed the options for claiming for stress with you previously, do you need me to go over these again or do you have another question?
