A spectrum emerges in employers’ liability for employees’ psychiatric injury


When will an employer be liable to an employee for damages in negligence for psychiatric injury from stress at work? The speakers will take a detailed review of cases such as Koehler -v- Cerebos (2005) 222 CLR 44, Kozarov v State of Victoria (2022) 273 CLR 115 and Bersee -v- State of Victoria [2022] VSCA 231 to indicate the spectrum of cases and provide helpful hints as to where a proposed claim might fall within the spectrum.
