Inform an employee who has submitted a statutory request in relation to study or training of his or her ineligibility to do so

Key points

  • Eligible employees in organisations employing at least 250 employees have a statutory right to make a request in relation to study or training.
  • Eligibility is dependent on a number of things, including the employee's length of service and whether or not he or she falls into an excluded category of employee.
  • Where an employee who is not eligible to do so has submitted a request, the employer should respond explaining why the employee does not qualify for the right to make a request in relation to study or training.
