Do I need permission to take LinkedIn Learning classes? How does this count towards my hours?

 As with attending an in-person class, staff members should always arrange with their supervisors ahead of time if they want to take classes during regular work hours.  If you are overtime eligible and want to take LinkedIn Learning classes during work hours, you are required to request your manager’s approval  in advance, just as you would if you were taking time to attend any classroom training, meeting, or program that takes place during work hours.  Since LinkedIn Learning is accessible from any computer, some staff may choose to participate in training on their own time.  Overtime eligible staff should note that any LinkedIn Learning courses taken during off hours should not be reported as time worked and will not qualify for overtime pay.
