The cost of conflict and health

Health is a casualty of conflict in the workplace. This is highlighted in

the case of Yasmin Rehman, head of diversity for the Metropolitan Police

in the UK in 2008, who had been off sick for the one year due to stress

related problems in her workplace. Rehman earns a salary of £60,000 a

year which had been paid to her in full whilst she was on sick leave owing

to the consequences of unresolved conflict in her organisation.

A further cost results is the need to employ temporary staff to fill the

position of an employee who is suffering illness and injury as a result of

conflict. This means that not just one but two salaries are being paid during

periods of extensive sick leave.

The severity of conflict in the workplace resulting in health issues affects

the premium paid by an employee to its health insurance provider.
