This query doesn't specifically relate to employees, but a national confederation I'm associated with elects each year volunteer officials and asks each branch to nominate branch members. As Branch Secretary, they require me to sign the following declaration:
"We confirm that the nominee is a member and physically and mentally able to undertake the role......"
As someone myself having a quite severe disability, I've always found having to sign this pretty unnecessary and distasteful and indeed somewhat offensive - especially as this is a body that's supposed to be representing the interests of occupational pensioners!
Am I being too fastidious here? - what do colleagues think?
