Most of our staff are in construction and must have certain training certificates (known as CSCS) to be able to work on site – for H&S purposes etc.

My boss now wants me to make them pay for these costs otherwise no work! I can introduce this requirement at interview stage (and contracts) for any new employees but don’t see how I can introduce this for current employees. I can’t see any of them agreeing to a variation in their contract to cover it and am not sure how it would stand as an unfair dismissal claim.

Any thoughts/ideas?
