    I agree for the most part with Mr Kennett's views particularly in ensuring that senior management look after the psychological health of their staff and make the work environment for workers is made as safe as possible in this respect. The only issue that I could see, however, would be where people may bring with them to the workplace existing mental health issues. If these mental health issues/illnesses were picked up through the recruitment process then this could lend to discrimination and managers choosing not to employ such people who may impact on their ability to earn their bonus.
