Our Asheville workers' compensation attorneys know that mental health conditions, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), that are caused by work-related events can become very complicated and require special attention.
According to a recent article in the NY Daily News, a former supermarket manager was found eligible to receive Workers' Compensation benefits due to PTSD after being harassed and threatened with genital mutilation.
The store manager claimed that the jealous husband of a female employee began harassing him in 2007. The manager called the employee at home on her day off and, the following day, the husband came to the store and threatened to kill him for having an affair with this wife. The manager denied having an affair with the female employee and said that the only reason he was calling was to inform her that due a slowdown in business, the store would be cutting back on hours for workers.
