I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
I do not disagree with the prior experts who have responded to your question. The policy does not to my knowledge violate employment laws.
However, I have a slightly different take on the situation. It may be that your original terms of employment, which required you to provide your own vehicle, created a term and condition of employment. Therefore, there is an argument that you have a "condition of employment contract
" that the company is now breeching. In that regard you have a contract
dispute with your employer.
This is very tricky however, because if you take the wrong tactic in approaching the company on this, they may decide that you are a problem employee and either fire you or "manage you out the door" in a manner where decide to resign.
You know the players involved (I of course do not). So you need to consider how you wish to approach this. Are there reasonable senior people that you can go to to obtain relief, or is it a company that puts employees needs last?
I wish I had a simple black and white answer for you, but this is one where you need to exercise your best judgment and your best negotiation skills.
I hope the information I have provided is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
