Employee Study and Training (Qualifying Period of Employment) Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2010

A statutory right to make a request in relation to study or training is introduced for employees in organisations with 250 or more employees. Employers will be obliged to consider seriously requests that they receive, but will be able to refuse a request where there is a good business reason for doing so. The Regulations prescribe that employees must have 26 weeks' continuous employment to be entitled to make an application in relation to study or training under s.63D of the Employment Rights Act 1996. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
