I've just been asked to begin a course towards understanding GDPR a little better.
It's fairly indepth, and required for my role (apparently).
I've been asked to sign a document with this clause :-
you are fully committed to studying and completing the course outside of your normal working hours.
There is no mention of remediation or time in lieu for the time worked.
The course has no direct 'personal' benefit which I'd put on my CV etc.
Is this normal? am I right in feeling concerned at this clause?
This question does share themes from How can we motivate employees to complete IT certificates? but I don't feel the answer given directly answers my question.
As an update, I questioned this clause with the operations director, who has stated that in this case, the clause is not needed.
