Loyal worker forover 13 years with company. Had Heart surgery in 2013. Have been monitored by GP and NHS Ever since. As Driver need to take DVLA's treadmill test every year.
Question: DVLA wanted me to do follow up tests with GP and NHS. Had to taken time off work (for times this year) to attend clinics have surgery (Cardiogram and Endescopy).
Boss gave me an informal warning for taking time off work (Four times in a year). Each time was not more than a day or two. Except the initial one a year ago which was for a month. As DVLA and GP NHS were worried because of adverse effects of tablets I am on and the stress from work, made me unable to drive.
Informed workplace and showed them GP NHS letters and they gave me a warning about having time off to attend the clinics that DVLA and NHS sent me to.
Is this discrimination?
