I am a part-time teaching assistant in an independent school, paid by the hour for my hours in class during term-time. My employer is now trying to compel me to work on INSET days for nothing, and insists I am also obliged to attend them on days when I do not normally work. Time in lieu is not even being offered as a consideration. Please is anyone able to tell me whether this is even legal? There is certainly no mention of this in my contract. Grateful thanks in advance for any help. Margie.
