If you or your training establishment is in dispute about any matter arising from your service under a training contract, either party may refer the matter to us and we shall endeavour to resolve the dispute.
We may appoint any person to act as conciliator in respect of a dispute between you and your training establishment.
If we are unable to resolve a dispute between you and your training establishment and we are satisfied that the training contract ought to be terminated, we may order its termination on such terms as we may determine.
If you or your training establishment are aggrieved by any decision made under regulation 27.3, you may apply for review of it in accordance with regulations 26.5 and 26.6.
We are unable to determine employment law matters or to give legal advice upon contractual matters. You are advised to seek independent legal advice.
When a training contract is terminated in accordance with regulation 26, the contract of employment will also fall away. There is no duality of contracts, despite the fact that several pieces of contractual documentation may exist.
