  • Stress Leave

    Taking time off work to recover from stress. While stress leave is not an official leave entitlement, employees can request to take sick leave or negotiate with their employer to agree to an informal unpaid leave arrangement.

    Workplace stress and fatigue pose a health and safety risk to employees. Therefore, employers should take reasonable steps to identify, manage and implement strategies to reduce the risk of stress in the workplace.
