A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to harm another person. This could be either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury. It could also be the financial consequences of an accident that is harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care
