my employers have recently brought in a new rule that if you live within 3 miles (crow flies distance, which works out to actually be 4.5 miles for me by road), then you have to get into work without driving. This is due to come into force in january. I have asthma that gets aggressive with a drop in temperature. I have an expensive mortgage and cannot afford to bus it in every day.
I know that when i get ill by virtue of having to walk in every day in the freezing winter months, that i will be at a disadvantage to others because it will force me to taint my sick record.
They have already vetoed any idea of giving you money towards public transport.
Is there anything i can do to stop them making me walk in when it will inevitably affect my health?
