This guidance has been developed with the help of the following organisations: Acas, Health and Safety Executive, Health, Work and Well-being and CIPD. It is aimed at directors and managers in employers of all sizes in the public, private and third sector.

This guidance summarises employers' legal duties to reduce work-related stress and where possible prevent it from impacting on the health of their employees. It provides a starting point in understanding the legal requirements and suggests actions for employers to take so that they not only comply with the law, but also improve the working conditions of all employees.
