    Hairsine v Kingston-Upon-Hull City Council [1992] IRLR 211 EAT (0 other reports)

In Hairsine v Kingston-upon-Hull City Council, the EAT holds that a trade union official's right to paid time off work for training is limited to those hours when the employee would normally be at work. If the training course falls outside those hours, the employee is not entitled to paid time off "in lieu" during his or her contractual working hours.
