Compulsory training = paid.

We recently heard that some Glenhaven staff may not have been paid for doing compulsory training modules at home – so when do you get paid for training?

  • If training is offered to you, and management suggest it’d be a great thing to do, but it’s not compulsory – NO, you don’t get paid for it.
  • If training is something you want to do to upskill, but it’s not compulsory – NO, you don’t get paid for it.
  • If training is considered compulsory by management, regardless of whether you do the modules at work or at home – YES, you do get paid for it.

When training is discussed be sure to ask management whether it’s compulsory and, if it is, let them know you’re expecting payment for all modules, including those done at home.

Feel free to have a go at any training that’s offered, but remember you only get paid if it is compulsory - if you run into any issues let us know.

Happy training!
