Psychiatric injury claims—balancing an employer's duty of care with an employee's right to privacy

Date: 17 August 2021, 09:00 - 10:00
Location: Online webinar
Chronic pain, Insurance Podcast | Small Banner

Psychiatric injury claims are increasing—they take longer to resolve, are more costly and are difficult to manage. A fine balancing act is often required—how does an employer discharge its duty of care to its employees at the same time as maintaining and respecting an employee's right to privacy?

Event Details

Join DWF's Head of Insurance in Australia, Damien van Brunschot, as he discusses how courts grapple with this balancing act. Damien will cover:

  • Basic principles of liability in psychiatry injury claims
  • Management of employees in emergency and other services
  • Right to privacy of employees
  • Discharging an employer's duty of care

You will have the opportunity to ask your own questions by submitting them to Selina Sawaya by 5pm AEST on Monday 16 August 2021. You can also submit questions during the live webinar.

We hope you can join us for what will be an interactive and informative discussion.
