Today, after finishing a two-day course for work, I was informed that the days used will either be unpaid or used up as holidays, as it was for improvement of myself and not the company. They put me on the course without my knowledge until the weekend before. FML

I don't know about the UK, but that's not legal in a lot of countries. Maybe try talking to HR or someone outside of the company.

Take it up with HR! That's not right.

This is not ok. As log as the course was their idea, payed by them, the 2 days should be payed.

Next thing you know you'll get an invoice for the course too..

Get that in writing get everything in writing to cover yourself

Pretty sure that's not legal.

In the US it would be a violation of the Fair Labor Practices Act. Any required training I make employees do must be paid. This would include professional development.

that's a form of theft on their part.

Have a word with the higher ups bonny lad

Sounda like one of those Scientology courses. Does you boss have a copy of Dianetics?

I'm guessing...sexual harassment seminar?
