Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. Have they said what will happen if you were to attend, or have the new employers said what will happen if you fail to do attend?
Ok thanks, ***** ***** employer can potentially refuse to allow you to attend the training required by the new employer. That is because you are still employed by them at this time and they have the right to decide how you spend your working time. They are paying you for this time so they have control over what you do. Morally they would be expected to allow you to attend as you are transferring shortly but legally they do not have to. So it may be best to try and resolve this with the new employer can just make it clear that you are not allowed to leave to do the training and they should be understanding because they cannot really force you to attend if you are not yet working for them.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
