Having injured my leg (not at work) I am going through some rough times. MY job requires me to travel abroad a lot and I need a laptop for the job. I have requested for a lighter machine as the ones I have is too heavy and is giving me difficulties.
My work is refusing to get me anything lighter (they have plenty of money but are very stingy). They require medical evidence for permanent damage but this will take time as I need to get xrays etc done. I have already given them a hospital letter for when the incident happened.
Are there any health and safety laws for offices which could help ? So far I have refused to keep working with the current machine.
