Stress to be recognized as an occupational injury


25% of the people in Denmark feel stressed “all the time” or “often”. As a result, trade unions are pushing for “stress” to be seen as an occupational injury. There is political support for the idea. 

  • An occupational injury is an illness or a disorder caused by the work or the conditions under which the work took place. You can see the full list of recognized injuries here. If stress becomes an occupational injury you will be able to request compensation from your employer if you are afflicted by it.
