The Employee Study and Training (Eligibility, Complaints and Remedies) Regulations 2010 and The Employee Study and Training (Procedural Requirements) Regulations 2010 have now been laid before Parliament. The Regulations grant employees the right to request time off to undertake certain study and training. Employees of employers with 250 or more employees will enjoy the right from this April. The right will apply to all other employees from April 2011. Guidance notes on the new right have also been published by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills - one for employees, Time to train: request time at work to learn new skills and one for employers, Consider time for training.
