Where the employer decides to uphold an appeal against the refusal of a statutory request in relation to study or training, is it obliged to arrange a meeting to discuss the appeal?

No, an employer that decides to uphold an appeal against the refusal of a statutory request in relation to study or training does not have to hold a meeting to discuss the appeal as long as it notifies the employee in writing, within 14 days of receipt of the appeal notice, that the appeal is upheld, giving specified details of the arrangements for the study or training.
