25.2.7 Case examples - Other contributing factors


1.In Fitzgerald and Comcare (1995), failure to obtain a promotion was a factor contributing to a stress-related illness, however the 'predominant factor' was an unsubstantiated allegation of fraud by an ex-supervisor.

2.In Myers and Comcare (1997), the applicant developed a stress condition as a result of the way a restructuring of her radiography department at Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital was managed as well as from her failure to obtain a new business manager position. Because the condition manifested before she had actually failed to obtain the new position, the exclusion was held not to apply.
