Employee Training FAQs
What is employee training?
Employee training is a work program that provides your staff with role-specific knowledge and skills to facilitate and improve their job performance within your business. For HR teams it plays a vital role in how you train, develop and engage your workforce and directly impacts your businesses retention, brand and growth.
Do employers need to pay staff for mandatory training?
Yes, in short, mandatory training does need to be paid, however this may be covered as part of your standard pay. If you earn the National Minimum Wage or close to it then your employer should pay you for time spent on mandatory training. This is because the pay received compared to the hours worked in the pay reference period might bring you below the National Minimum Wage. If you earn more than the National Minimum Wage, the time spent doing mandatory training might already be covered by your pay. If the training is not during your regular working hours, check your employment contract to see if you’ll be paid for the time spent on training.
You do not have to pay employees if they request time off for training or study that isn’t required for them to carry out their job.
If you’re an employee or worker and started working for your employer after 6 April 2020 your written terms must set out the training that you must complete, including training the employer does not pay for.
Does training for employees of limited companies offer tax relief?
As a general rule, yes, limited companies can apply for tax relief for employee training. When you put your staff of appropriate job-related training, UK businesses can claim tax relief on training expenditure for directors and employees providing the training is aimed at improving the skills needed in the business. Allowable training costs are claimed as a deduction when calculating taxable business profits.
How does training and development improve employee motivation?
Training and development can help your employees to understand exactly where they fit into your organisation. With clear plans for personal development, progression and regular training within their roles, employees will be able to understand and visualise where their contributions and work fits into wider business goals. In turn, this often leads to improved motivation and a deeper connection to your business ultimately increasing morale, productivity and quality of work.
Do you have to pay employees for training?
Whether employees need to be paid for training depends on the purpose of the training. Legally, you do not have to pay employees if they request time off for training or study that isn’t required for them to carry out their job. However, if you request that an employee undertakes training that’s required for their job, then this should be paid.
