HR managers should be wary of how the definition of ‘psychological injury’ varies according to jurisdiction.

    The lack of national definitions not only creates confusion for organisations, but it can also create similar confusion and even angst for targets who, based on advice or a diagnosis provided by a medical professional, may believe that they would be successful in lodging a claim.

    Given the differences that exist from State to State, it is important not only for organisations to provide managers and workers with an understanding of these differences, it is also important to ensure that any training provided addresses the various differences.
