Low recognition and reward

Low recognition and reward can have serious psychological health impacts at work and is a hazard. It means there is an imbalance between the effort workers put in and the recognition or reward they get. It may also be a way for an employer to target an HSR for exercising their powers. In this instance, see our page on discrimination for OHS reasons. 

Remember, if there are psychosocial hazards present in your workplace your employer must consult HSRs when addressing these issues.
