Does my employer have to pay for training?
If training is mandatory, then so is the pay.
I'm a sales assistant at a large department store. Our company requires new associates to attend a training seminar on motivating customers to buy. It's like sales techniques and strategies mixed with pop psychology. I wouldn't mind doing it if it was during regular work hours, but it's on the weekend -- and it costs $350. Can they make me go? Can they make me pay for it?
