From April 6th next year, any new worker in any company of any size will be bale to request time to train and study for their new role.
Currently, only workers in firms with more than 250 people are given this right and some experts have questioned the impact that this legislation is likely to have on smaller business.
Sylvia Constantine, IBA Start up Business Adviser of the Year 2005, said that sometimes if a small business trains somebody, they fear that the individual will leave for a better job once they are highly skilled.
She explained: "It is a genuine concern that small businesses have got. The problem is that one employee, when you are a small business, is a larger proportion when compared to large businesses - it has a much bigger impact."
