Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, thank you for the question.
What does your contract say regarding a car? Does it say you must have a driving licence or does it say you must have use of a car for work purposes? How long have you been with the company for?
Hi there, if it does not specify you have to use your car, then the company should provide you with a company car in essence. Can they offer this or will be obstructive?
There's still nothing in your contract which says you must use your own car
As such if they try to discipline you, it would be unfair and if they allege you cannot do your job and dismiss you, you could sue for unfair dismissal.
You could try to speak to ACAS to see if they can speak to your employer and see a way around it. It may be worth a call (0300(###) ###-####.
The company could insist you use your car but there is nothing in the contract which says you "must" use your car
I hope this helps
