ODT Consulting - Legal Consulting - Two hands point to a document

The basis for legal advisory with regard to potential hazards due to mental stress in the company is § 5 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (ArbSchG) in the Federal Republic of Germany.

In Switzerland, employers are obliged to ensure the health protection of their employees. Four legal forms are important:
  • Article 328 of the Swiss Code of Obligations (OR)
  • Article 6 of the Labour Act (ArG)
  • Articles 2 & 3 of Ordinance 3 to the Labour Act (Health Care Ordinance, ArGV3)

In Italy, there are still no relevant articles from a labour law perspective that protect the mental health of employers and employees.

Work-related stress is therefore also a current problem from a legal perspective.

We advise employers on how to prevent employee burnout and protect them from the legal consequences of burnout-related illnesses.

Specifically, we advise you on the following key issues:

  • Employer liability risks (when employees suffer from burnout?)
  • Employee protection against dismissal (employer’s rights and obligations)
  • Continued payment of remuneration (e.g. continued payment of wages in the event of illness)
  • Reintegration (rights of the employee)

In our advisory sessions, we will review your situation together with you and develop solutions.
