    I was quoting what he said. I should probably have added a (sic) for your benefit.
    No, nor was it suity. But we'd have probably used suity instead of the desk to break the window. #nosensenofeeling

    We had the reverse parking thing in my last job. We also had to hold the handrail when walking up and downstairs and if we saw someone not holding the handrail then we had to log a near miss (I'm not joking).

    Contractors were not pushed into attending medicals but they did have to attend mandatory health and safety training courses during which the handrail rule was drummed into us.

    OH appointments at private medical companies are not cheap. It'd no doubt upset the client if I don't attend so my plan now is to disclose but do it in a way that makes me look like a great exemplar for the bipolar community. I might give them links to my posts on this forum to show them how well balanced and professional I am in comparison to the competition.

    Checks employers can make on job applicants - GOV.UK

    You can only ask successful candidates for a health check before hiring them if:

    it’s a legal requirement, for example eye tests for commercial vehicle drivers

    the job requires it, for example because your insurers need health checks on cycle couriers
    it appears to be inappropriate, especially for an IT contractor.

    That’s for employer/employee. Not for business to business contracts.

    If that’s a lie we might as well ignore everything you write.
