Most UK employees say they have experienced mental health issues because of work, yet over a million people face negative consequences after disclosing this to their employers.
That’s according to new research published by the charity Business in the Community (BITC), which found that three in five (60%) employees say they have experienced mental health issues because of their job.
The survey of more than 3,000 employees found that among those who had disclosed mental health issues to an employer, 15% faced dismissal, disciplinary action or demotion. This is up from 9% identified in similar research by BITC undertaken in 2016.
