Claims for psychological injuries: from theory to practice

Claims for psychological injuries are part of the most complex category of injuries to deal with. They involve the intangible: human factors, perceptions, work dynamics. With so much subjectivity and given the absence of specific provisions in the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases, it is important to take stock of the positions adopted by the courts and to get a good grasp of applicable guidelines. This workshop is intended for participants who have a good basic knowledge of claims management.
