Just a timely reminder that it is possible to get an Industrial Injury Declaration (and therefore benefit) for psychological injury caused by bullying. Not easy, mind you, but possible. There are a number of hoops that have to be jumped, in the right order - but it's possible. Essentially, you have to demonstrate that your injury was caused by specific, abnormal events on particular dates. You won't get it for vague, long-term stress that is part of an ongoing process. Their gaff; their rules. You download the forms here http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Diol1/DoItOnline/DG_4017784. If you think this may be relevant for your situation, I am happy to provide more specific information for individuals. Now why don't unions tell you this?
