    Rama v South West Trains Ltd [1997] EWHC 976 HC (0 other reports)

In Rama v South West Trains, the High Court confirms that the test to determine safety representatives' entitlement to paid leave to attend health and safety training is not limited to training that is necessary to enable representatives to fulfil their functions. The question is whether the training requested is reasonable for aspects of their functions and, if it is, the employer must allow it.
