Worker’s Anxiety Not Caused by Excessive or Unusual Work Stressors

A worker’s claim for chronic onset psychological stress/depression was denied so he appealed. The worker claimed that he was subjected to unusual work stressors, including being called names by his supervisor, being held to a higher standard than other workers and denied a vacation request. The Appeals Commission upheld the denial, ruling that there was insufficient evidence to conclude that work stressors were the predominant cause of the worker’s anxiety disorder. And the work stressors he complained of weren’t excessive and, in fact, were normal work pressures [Decision No: 2012-356, [2012] CanLII 19829 (AB WCAC), April 13, 2012].
