Employment Law Advice

    Just wondered if anyone might be able to advise on this…I’ve been looking on the HSE website but can’t see anything relating.  

    A friend of mine works for a crèche and we’re told they had to come in on a Saturday morning to do manual handling and first aid courses. They had to pay for each course but we’re not paid for coming in to do them or given time in lieu. I assume training is not the responsibility of the company to pay for but seems a bit off they’ve to come in on a day off to carry it out with no pay? Crèche stated they can’t do it during work time due to the kids being in. 

    Would anyone would have any experience on if this type of thing and would it be regulated in any way…or if anyone has Mick Lynch’s phone number?? 

    Thanks in advance

    If an employer is legally required to have staff attain certain training qualifications then they should absolutely be paying for that training and providing time off for it.
