Apportioning damages for psychiatric injury caused by workplace discrimination - BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd v Konczak [CA] 31.07.17 (Unreported)
The court endorsed the guidance given in obiter comments in Barber v Somerset CC  EWCA Civ 76,  2 All E.R. 1,  C.L.Y. 3264 in relation to the apportionment of damages for psychiatric injury caused by an employer's wrongdoing. In cases where there were multiple extrinsic causes of psychiatric injury, a sensible attempt should be made to apportion the harm, but there might be cases where the harm was indivisible and apportionment would be wrong.http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2017/1188.html
