Government decides against extending Time to Train regulations
The Government has shelved plans to extend the Time to Train regulations to smaller firms.
Employees with organisations employing more than 250 people have had the right to request time for training since April 2010. The previous Labour Government had planned to extend that right to small and medium-sized businesses in April this year.
However, the Coalition Government says it doesn’t want to burden small businesses with more regulation. It has decided to delay implementation to allow for further “discussion scrutiny and evaluation”.
