Consultation on future of the right to make a request in relation to study or training

Close date: 15 September 2010

The Government consults on whether or not it should repeal the statutory right to make a request in relation to study or training. The statutory right, which came into force for employees in organisations with 250 or more employees on 6 April 2010, is due to extend to employees in organisations with fewer than 250 employees in April 2011. The Government proposes an alternative, which is to amend the statutory right to reduce the burden on employers that already operate training schemes.
