Fibromyalgia Triggered By Disciplinary Action

Fibromyalgia Triggered By Disciplinary Action

The following question was recently posted in Fibromyalgia Magazine

Dear Alexa ,

I have been employed by my current employer for over ten years with an exemplary work record. I have never been given a warning, let alone been suspended, until three years ago when I was suspended for one year on full pay for something that I did not do. I was distraught by my employer’s decision and it really knocked my confidence.

Since the suspension, I have not been able to regain my full confidence which caused depression to kick in. I then began to feel pain in different joints including my elbows and ankles. Three years have passed and I have now been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia that I believe was caused by my employer’s treatment of me. Would I be able to bring a claim against my employer even though there was no physical harm?

I am sorry to hear about your employer’s treatment of you and your subsequent development of fibromyalgia. You may be able to bring a claim even though there was no physical harm if we can show that your fibromyalgia was caused wholly or even partially by your employer’s conduct. However, you will have to be diagnosed with clinical depression as you cannot claim mild depression that is normal for people to experience.

I would also need to consider whether your employer should know that their actions would have caused your depression. The general rule is that employers can assume that their employees can withstand the usual pressures of the job unless they have reason to believe otherwise.

You may also say that the suspension happened three years ago. I will need to consider the exact time of your suspension and development of symptoms in order to determine whether the three-year time period to bring a personal injury claim has lapsed.

There are a lot of hurdles to overcome that make these cases difficult to prove. If you are a member of a union or have legal expense insurance, usually found in a Home Contents Policy, you may be able to fund such a claim.
