    As someone who sees bogus workers compensation claims on a daily basis this would be the first legitimite story I've heard where it would be a perfect opportunity to open up a workers comp claim for stress. What they are doing is ILLEGAL. If he went to Fairwork Australia I'm sure they'd be willing to take this on. This is exactly what I would do. Get your DH to go to a workers compensation doctor (most medical centres have one) and get DH to explain the situation at work. The doctor will conduct a physical examination and having high blood pressure is definitely stress related. The doctor will then write out a workers compensation medical certificate and will probably tick that it is all stress related. He may either also tick the option of suitable duties/restricted duties or even if he sees fit, tick the option where your DH will be medically unfit for work. He can take this certificate to his work and they immediately have to open up a workers compensation claim. Your DH will be paid for any days off that the doctor gives him. Once you have an open workers compensation claim, it is close to impossible to terminate an employee so make sure your DH understands that he can not be fired for this. I have heard of stress leave cases lasting for years on end. Those people were paid for their time away from work. There is obviously more to it but that is the gist of how it works. I am sick to death of seeing companies take advantage of their staff and all because the employee won't stand up for themselves! As an employee, believe me when I say, your DH has more rights than the employer!

    Default I HATE SALARY. And I HATE my husbands work.

    While ever he keeps doing the over time without the pay they are not going to hire someone else .....he needs to put his family first and he isn't doing that...
    He is being used and is letting them use him ....time to find a new job before he looses his family ...

    I empathise with you.... But seriously, why does your DH want to remain employed by this company? I get the need for secure employment, but why does he not look for another role where he will be appreciated and have work/life balance... Personally I would not work for an organization that treated me the way your DH is being treated....

    Definitely time for a new job, this situation is crazy and you know what, if he leaves, the world will keep spinning, things will get done, and no offense but no one is indispensable

    Handling that for 2 years makes your DH a hero. My DH did it for 3 months and has been on workers comp since. it caused him enter into severe depression and anxiety which has led to other medical conditions and issues stemming from it. he has done some work over the last 3 years but always ends up back on no duties.
