Mr Matthewman contacted Oakwood about stress at work and legal advice to make a claim in the UK
Mr Matthewman worked as a postman and was a well know friendly face in the local area. He always had a cheery smile and was particularly fond of his elderly customers who liked to pass the time of day with him.
On one particular day he posted a letter at an elderly lady’s house at the same time as a recorded delivery parcel arrived. He was concerned that the elderly householder would have to trek all the way to the sorting office to collect the parcel when she got home so he signed for her. They knew each other well and he was pleased to be able to help her.
The father of two had worked as a postman for almost 10 years with an unblemished service. However when the pensioner called his managers to thank him for his kindness they began disciplinary action against him.
Mr Matthewman was signed off from his job with stress at work and subsequently retired on the grounds of ill health; he was urged by his family to take legal advice which could help him in the UK.
Mr Matthewman contacted Oakwood who helped him win a claim for compensation. His employers decided to settle the case out of court. If you need advice on stress at work and legal advice on how to make a claim in the UK call Oakwood’s Team now on: 0844 499 9302.
