Day off work for citizenship test

Recommended Posts

When the citizenship test occurs on a workday/weekday, are companies/employers obliged to provide paid leave for the day? Or does one have to use their annual holiday leave to be able to sit the test?

 

Couldn't find the answer googling.

No, they are not obliged to give you time off. I have booked a half day of annual leave for mine.

No, we took leave.  No obligation to give you the time off.

Why on earth would they be obliged to give you a day of for this???

It's your choice to become a citizen nothing to do with your employer....

You can re schedule to a better time if it helps but most employers won’t give time off.

Yes, it’s easy to reschedule. I rescheduled mine and brought it forward by 2 months! (Well, 1 month and 26 days)!

I must have been lucky. I took the day off and I was paid personal leave.

Thats what most people do. Book a day's leave and do the test then. Nothing to do with the employer what a person gets up to on a leave day.
