I'm trying to interpret my contact and work out whether I'm entitled to time off in lieu if required to attend training. I normally have a fixed set of working hours per day.

It states that I may be required to attend training and that this may take place outside of normal working hours. It also states no additional remuneration will be provided - but it doesn't say either way whether I can take off time in Lieu.

Does no additional remuneration implicitly indicate that I'm not entitled to this?

  • @MichaelC. question didn't associate with my account for some reason. But Salaried. – Ian May 18 '17 at 22:03

"No additional remuneration" doesn't mean you won't get paid - it means you won't get paid extra. For it being out-of-hours. Work related training is work and you are entitled to normal remuneration- if your contract has time-in-lieu provisions then you can use them.

  • In this case there isn't any "time in lieu" provision, except when being made to work a bank holiday. – Ian May 18 '17 at 22:07
