An email asked staff at the driving licence HQ in Swansea, South Wales, to reply “ASAP”.
The request was part of a “points-based” system.
Staff score a point for higher Covid risk factors — such as being overweight — being male, pregnant or from an ethnic minority background.
Those who score four or more and can’t work from home can be given “special paid leave”.
