Right to request time off for training to be introduced
A right to request time off to undertake training, modelled on the right to request flexible working, will be introduced from April 2010.

Employers will be obliged to consider seriously requests that they receive, but will be able to refuse a request where there is a good business reason for doing so.

Employers will not be obliged to meet the salary or training costs to enable a request for time off to train to be met. The Government intends to introduce the right to time off to train for employees in organisations with 250 or more employees in April 2010, with the legislation being extended to cover all employees from April 2011 at the earliest.

If you require advice or assistance before revising your employment documentation or learning and development policies please contact us.
