    Have you ever had any issues with weekly time sheet pay?
    I am currently still waiting for pay from before Christmas.
    Would I be within my rights to not go to my long term supply placement tomorrow as my pay is over three weeks late?

    It might be worth giving the agency an ultimatum: "No money by Friday and I'm walking."

    I agree with JR...give the agency a warning to sort your pau out. A week's notice is adequate.

    Sorry you have been put in this position. Do the pay younweekly or monthly?

    Thanks for the advice. I'll do that then.
    I'm paid weekly.

    I have always been paid promptly on the Thursday after submitting timesheets on a Friday. I would definitely be unhappy about a three week wait so you'd be right to chase it up.

    I seem to remember when I first started supply teaching there was a school that was very tardy about a day's pay.

    Come to think of it I don't think I ever got it. !

    Other than that I never had a problem. The agency I worked for had a very efficient online system which worked well for me.
