Mr Ardley used Oakwood after he suffered stress at work; our team of highly professional solicitors were pleasedto get him compensation.
Mr Ardleywas a painter and decorator. He worked for his most recent company for 5 years. He had 2 children to care for by himself. He occasionally needed to take an hour or so off work to drop the children off or to take them to appointments. He had always been allowed to make the time up that he needed to take off during the day.
Due to the recession clients began to cancel jobs and the company were getting fewer new business opportunities so Mr Ardley had significantly less work than a year ago. His manager would not allow any flexibility in our client’s day. This caused some considerable stress for our client.
Mr Ardley began to suffer chest pains and heart palpitations. His doctor recommended that he take time off work as he diagnosed the symptoms as extreme stress. He eventually had to go back to work. The bullying from the general manager had increased as had his workload. He came to Oakwood for help.
