Training: paid or unpaid?

We’ve been contacted about the upcoming training, which staff have been told they must attend.

Workers have told us that while the training is mandatory, it's not in paid time, and that they’ve been told Emmerton Park will pay half the course fees but they'll have to pay the remaining half themselves.

This has caused some confusion as Emmerton Park has paid for all compulsory training in its entirety in the past, and it' s been done in paid time.

HACSU believes that if training is compulsory then staff should be paid to attend for the entirety of the training, so we've written to Ian to seek further information and will be in touch again once we hear back from him.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email assist@hacsu.org.au or complete our online contact form
