Abstract


The paper aims to study and compare the experience of the European Union and
Ukraine in relation to the protection of employees’ psychological health, applying both a quantitative and qualitative approach. The analysis focuses on the problems of protection of the psychological health of employees and the need to implement effective legal mechanisms for stress prevention in the workplace. The drawbacks of the protection strategy are highlighted, as is the need to implement more effective measures. It thus demonstrates the advisability of a comprehensive approach to solving the problem of professional burnout, through the introduction of measures both within labour law and social security law.
