Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Does the employer have the more formal details of why you do not believe it is suitable?
Is there any independent evidence of that, for example have you discussed it with a specialist, your GP, etc?
It is not so much the dates of when it happen but the reasons for it. Simply showing that it happened at the time you worked fro he does not mean that was the reason for it - you need something more concrete like medical evidence or a professional’s opinion that these conditions would affect your medical situation and make working from home unsuitable. So whilst you can try and get that from your own doctor, I would still suggest you see OH about it and discuss it in some more detail - if you have the medical evidence to bring with you, then that would be better.
In the end you cannot force the employer to accept your argument it is unsuitable. If hat happens then you may have to resign and then pursue them for constructive dismissal and potential discrimination. Of course it should be a last resort but it is there if you need it.
