Greetings all, I'm hoping that I'm in the right place so apologies if not. I started a Maternity cover at the end of February but still not have had any form of contract in written terms. I think I should be worried by this as without any written terms of employment I am currently unable to know the wording of the contract and therefore if I will employed until term ends in July or until 31 August. I have mamaged to secure a permanent job for September which is great and I know that the teacher I am covering for is coming back in September but I would still like to know if I need to start saving now or if I will have some summer holiday pay! So I suppose my question is this: having been to see my current school's finance officer almost every day since Easter to ask if she had my contract yet, are there any other ways to hurry along my contract? I have heard that employers have up to 8 weeks to issue a contract to its employee, but what happens then? Sorry for rambling and thanks for any help, advice or suggestions.
