The purpose of this study is to review the legal situation of the psychosocial work enivronment for principals. The purpose is also to get an increased understanding for how the principals work environment can affect people involved in the swedish school. The psychosocial work environment is explained through studying European law, national law and case law. The principals work situation is studied by different sources, for example from the Work Environment Agency and a report from the Swedish School Agency. The legal dogmatic method has been applied with the legal sociology method to analyze the material. Four interviews have been conducted with principals in Växjö municipality.
The results point out that Sweden needs to claify the legalisation in the area of the psychosocial work environment area. A very unique trial regardning the municipality of Krokom where a man committed suicid, is causing uncertainty in the legal sitaution. Two supervisors were just acquitted from the accusation by the Swedish Court of Appeal, despite they were earlier sentenced in the District Court. The analyze shows that principals in Sweden have a high workload and that they wish for a decrease of aministrative assignments. The four principals that were interviewed agree to that their high workload negatively influences the school. The principals dont have time to participate during lecturing hours in order to provide teachers with feedback.
