It usually doesn't make sense to send someone for a training if they're already an expert. But it's different if there's a certification or some other type of recognition tied to it. It's reasonable to pursue ...

I'm speaking as a shop steward. I've had to defend probationary employees. The employer always has the expectation to hire employees in good faith and we've been able to win when we've found evidence that the employee did not have a conducive training environment. That is the employer's responsibility to train employees. In the private sector, you can ...
