To ask the Scottish Government how many incidences of short-term sick leave (under five working days) due to work related stress have been reported by Abellio ScotRail staff from 1 April 2015, broken down by month.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 6 December 2016
The Scottish Government does not hold information on Abellio ScotRail staff sick leave due to work related stress at that level of detail. At an organisational level, there were 68 cases of sick leave due to work related stress reported to us in the first year of the Abellio ScotRail Franchise (1 April 2015 – 31 March 2016). For the current franchise year up to Period 7 (2016 -2017) there have been 29 cases of sick leave due to work related stress reported.
