Invitation to Time to Train Appeal Meeting

An Employee who is employed in an organisation with 250 or more Employees and who has at least 26 weeks’ continuous service has the legal right to make a request in relation to study or training and to have their request considered.

Where an Employee’s statutory request for study or training is declined, the Employee has a statutory right to lodge an appeal against the decision within 14 days of the refusal.

The Employer must hear the appeal within another 14 days and communicate the outcome in writing to the Employee within a further 14 days.

This template letter can be used to invite the Employee to attend an appeal meeting.
