  • Eligible for compensation. Preexisting conditions that the work place acclerates or aggravates. Mental and physical strain by increased work duties or work related stress. Demands of the job and a supervisor's constant harassment. An attorney can explain what you can expect at every step of the claims process.

  • In the UK you can receive compensation from your employer for industrial stress in the workplace. It is not easy however to prove an employer's responsibility for this so you would need to speak to a solicitor to assess your particular circumstances.

Not unless you can prove: -that a work condition caused or exacerbated a seizure condition, -that a stressful work environment exacerbated an existing seizure condition, -that a required duty caused you to be in a place where you sustained a head injury which caused the seizure, or -that your employer required you to be at work despite their knowledge of an unusually high risk of seizure activity (you had run out of medication, for example).

It's to your advantage that they do not respond. You qualified your reasons for quitting and the employment investigator has to check out the facts. If the company does not defend its policies that caused you to quit, the state would find in your favor.
