Training: Respond to a statutory request in relation to study or training

When to use this training flowchart

Use this training flowchart to deal with a request in relation to study or training made under the statutory procedure.

Most requests will involve time off for training, but the right is not limited to requests for time off: an employee might, for example, make a request that the employer organise, provide or pay for training.

While employers are not obliged to agree to requests made in relation to study or training, if they fail to follow the required procedure on receipt of a request, the employee will be able to bring an employment tribunal claim.
