  1. In addition to my last, does my treatment for anxiety/depression have any bearing here? The former of which I have been on medication for several years, the latter has been going on for a long time, but only recently did events mean I spoke to my GP at length about it, hence why I am waiting to see a Consultant Psychiatrist.My GP considers me to have the conditions, but I haven't been officially diagnosed by a specialist, per se.
  2. Thanks for the prompt and helpful reply, however, can I just ask you to clarify what you mean by "absence is protracted"? Do you mean if it gets worse and over time I have to have a lot more time off? Apologies, just want to be sure of the context as it's not a word I am familiar with in this respect. There has never been any doubt or question as to my ability to carry out my work, indeed, the OHS said the impact would be minimal, which it is, however, from time to time the condition simply overwhelms me, and I need time to 'recharge'. Can I also ask in what capacity you reply? Are you en
  3. Employer has in excess of 100 employees. They have sent me to the same Occ Health twice, so I guess they subscribe to this service. In 2011, Occupational Health wrote : "certainly, the duration of his symptomatology would put him in the chronic fatigue category [1] and for this reason I believe it would be prudent to assume that it could be covered by the disability provisions of the Equality Act 2010" In 2014, Occupational Health wrote : "I think it probable that - named individual - would be considered covered by the disability provisions of the Equality Act 2010, although as I am
  4. Please, can someone offer me some sound legal advice regarding M.E/CFS and employment law? My situation is that I have officially been diagnosed with CFS (and therefore am most likely covered under the Equality Act 2010) and the condition has meant I have taken quite a bit of time off work in the last few months. This is due in part to me having to 'hide' the condition in fear of my job, something which I have found quite difficult to do, and which has meant no life for the last two years. A change at the top with my employer bought in a more 'sympathetic' viewpoint, but with a culmination of
  5. The genuine concern I have, which I consider important enough to dispute, does not need 'lightening up', thank you. Have you actually read and absorbed my posts? I am being 'forced' to park in this area under instruction from Management whereas previously I would park in what I consider a safer area. I have no viable alternative to using my car for the commute to and from work, and there are too many restrictions in place to make parking on the public highway an option (2 hour limited parking, yellow lines etc) I am parking on site out of necessity, thus I am tryi
  6. I need to cite this, as I fear challenging my concerns with opinion alone is going to fall on deaf ears. But we are heading in the right direction
  7. I absolutely agree with you, but would point out I don't believe I suggested any obligation to provide parking as you perhaps imply. The choice aspect is not quite so clear as whether to choose using public transport or private. Private transport is essential to travel and with the restrictions on public highway parking, there is little else to do but park where facilities are provided. Therefore, choosing to park there is out of necessity rather than perhaps a preference over parking somewhere else. Employee liaison certainly does need improvement. Having spoke (earlier in the
  8. My employer is giving me a permit to park. They are therefore providing me with parking. Yes, I choose to park there, but there is little or no other option than to commute by car. Public transport, for example, is not possible. Parking is provided on site for employees. It is neither written, nor it is a verbal contract. It is simply accepted. Whereas I currently choose to park in a 'safe' area, my employer is insisting I now park in an unsafe area without accepting the risk to my property thereon. I don't think that is acceptable. I have to use my car to arrive at my plac
  9. No, I believe you have confused the issue. I am being told to park in the rear car park from now on, whilst other 'preferential' employees will be allowed to park in the front car park for reasons explained earlier. Please note : There isn't really an option to park on the highway due to local restrictions in place. The location is also rural, so car transport is quite necessary. I currently choose to park in the car park where damage is less likely to occur to my car as my employer will not accept liability for such. My employer is now insisting I park my car in a car park wher
  10. No-one is being allocated parking spaces as such, more parking 'areas' in which they must park. Those allowed to park in the front car park (my favoured choice as previously explained) are those staff who have to leave the premises either to carry out their roles, or are part-time, arriving later or finishing earlier. The decision for them being allowed to park in the front car park is that they don't have to be concerned with unlocking a gate to enter/exit. The matter seems trivial I know, but to my knowledge, no consultation has taken place, certainly none that I have been inv
  11. Yes, this is my main concern. My car is well looked after, machine polished with a finish to the paintwork I'd like to maintain. I'm not a 'petrol head' per se, but it is a nice car and I like to keep it looking that way. My fear is that students will either wilfully scratch the paint, or innocently damage it by way of a football, mud slinging, stone throwing etc as it is directly adjacent to their 'playground' area. I am being told that to park my car there is at my own risk, certainly in respect of any damage caused, which is why I currently choose to park it in an alternativ
  12. I have, to my knowledge, signed nothing. Can you cite a legal/official source to support your statement? If I can build a solid case to at the very least ensure the area where I am being forced to park my car is 'safe', it would be useful.
  13. I have no idea as to who 'agreed' the permits; I know mention of it has been about for many months now, but has only just come to the fore in an 'official' capacity. I do not know the Council's policy, nor do I know what happens if you do not have, or display a permit (the latter of which I intend to also not do as it has been said we must affix the permit to the interior of the windscreen, the holder of such being a permanent 'glue' backed plastic wallet affair) I am a member of a Union, and may well have words, but I wanted to gauge some opinion prior to doing this. My main gr
  14. The permits are being issued by the school, I presume, or at least by the member of staff who has, with management's blessing, seemingly organised the whole affair. Some staff are being allowed to park in the front car park, these having been identified as needing to leave the premises during normal office hours, i.e. part-time staff, finance office staff, management. The rear car park exit/entrance gate is locked (school policy) and secured with a combination lock, so anyone with knowledge of it can gain entry/exit. I fail to see why this doesn't include the above staff? Yes, m
