Is mat. pay different for temp teachers, even with 5yrs FT service and 2yrs random supply?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by bluearsedfly, May 16, 2011.

  1. <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="post">I didnt think it made a difference as I have 5 full time yrs of service, plus a couple of yrs doing random supply.
    I am temporary (due to numbers), leave for maternity on 17th July, but I'm am going back in Nov and I'll be at my school until at least the end of next school yr (2011-12).
    BUT my job share has told me that temporary teachers get as different rate of maternity pay to permanent teachers... is this correct? I've looked on my union's www, and the burgundy book but can't find any info saying either way.
    Has anyone heard of temp mat pay differing to perm? and how was it different?
    Thanks

    It may be that you don't qualify for statutory maternity pay, but will recieve ordinary maternity pay instead. Check on www.tesfaq.co.uk or download the Maternity Matters handbook from the resource section of this site.
     
  3. I'll look into that, but I thought everyone gets SMP, unless you've not paid anough tax???

    As a rule, they cannot offer different terms to staff on temporary contracts. If you have been employed continuously by the same organisation for over 4 years on fixed term contracts, you may even have gained permanent status by law.
