The consequences of a long-term exposure to their influence are felt by both the employee and the employer.

The subject of the paper is also the definition of the possibilities of protection of employees against psychosocial risks in the workplace which are regulated in the legislation of the Slovak Republic.

Key Words: Labour Law; Psychosocial Risks; Prevention; Mental Health; Work Environment; the Slovak Republic.
