Science Nordic reports on a Danish study that has determined that an overwhelming workload isn't what causes workplace depression; instead, an "unfair boss and an unfair work environment are what really bring employees down."

A huge pile of unfinished work is not the main reason why employees become depressed, concludes an extensive new Danish study.

Surprisingly, the study indicates that a heavy workload has no effect on whether or not employees become depressed.
Instead, it is the work environment and the feeling of being treated unfairly by the management that has the greatest effect on an employee’s mood.
