Right to request time off for training
Close date: 10 September 2008
The Government is consulting on the
introduction of the right to request time off for training. The right is to be
modelled on the right to request flexible working and will apply to employees
with at least 26 weeks' employment with a given employer. Employers will have
to consider seriously employees' requests for time off to train.
