Sorry if this forum is not the correct one but I have searched some of the others and couldn't find anything on the story. Yesterday it was reported that the cycle to work scheme where tax incentives are given where an employer pays for a bike and accessories for employees. The scheme is on hold for fear that civil servants may bring claims against the employer.
I dont quite get this. Is it claims for accidents for coming to work if they were knocked down while on the bike? Is anyone else outraged about this? Where is the foundation for this? Anyone?
