Health problems caused by redundancy

Does anyone know if its possible to claim from an employer
for health problems caused by being made redundant.
I am still at the company and working out my 6 month notice period,
but have been suffering some serious stress related problems as a direct
result of being made redundant.
The docters say its related to shock and trauma.
Someone at an agency said you can claim an extra month's salary?

Hi

Your doctor can write you a sick note if you are suffering from serious stress and the company will have to pay you the for the length of the sick note on top of your notice period.

Hope you will feel better soon...

Yes, but for how long and for how long you will be paid depends on several factors; how long you have worked for the company, how much sick you have already been this year, what type of Krankentaggeld insurance your company has.
