Re: Is Lunch break meant to be only for lunch :) ?

I guess it would be a grey area if it was your own course financed by yourself but they have to take a view and if they consider the course to be "work time" then it can't be considered "lunch time".

There are so many stories on here from employees whose employers are taking them for a ride and trying to weedle them out of "free time", it's quite refreshing to read from someone who has got the opposite problem and doesn't necessarily want their free time...
I can't imagine the company considering a language course as work time. We certainly don't; we pay for half the course if an employee wants to do it, but then they do it on their own time (e.g. It's a benefit, not a working requirement).
