A) When you reported to the issues to your employer did they take any steps to reduce the amount of stress you were being exposed to in the workplace? If you did report the incident to your employer but they did not act upon your complaints, it is extremely likely that they can be held responsible for the symptoms of stress you developed as a consequence.
Your employer has a duty of care towards you and they must to protect your best interests, this includes ensuring you are not exposed to dangerous levels of stress in the workplace.
Every employer should have a procedure in place whereby employees who feel they are suffering from excessive amounts of stress can report their concerns.
