Guidance on reporting

Facility Time data is data that you need to collect, report and publish under the Trade Union Facility Time Publication Requirements Regulations 2017.

As a public sector employer, you must report and publish information on facility time for your employees who are trade union representatives.

Facility time is when an employee takes time off from their normal role to carry out their duties and activities as a trade union representative.

You need to report and publish this information once a year every year.
