For the purposes of the right to make a request in relation to study or training, how is the number of employees that an employer employs determined?

The right to make a request in relation to study or training applies to employees in organisations with at least 250 employees.

The number of employees that an employer employs means the average number of employees employed in the previous 12 months, calculated by adding together the number of employees employed in each month (whether or not they were employed throughout the month) and dividing the total by 12.

For an organisation that has not been in existence for 12 months, the average number of employees over the period during which it has been in existence should be used.
