Key points

  • Employees who are pension scheme trustees are entitled to time off to enable them to perform their duties as trustees and to receive training relevant to the duties of a trustee.
  • The entitlement is to a reasonable amount of paid time off.
  • If an employer refuses an employee time off or fails to pay the employee for the time off, the employee may present a claim to the employment tribunal.
