    Dismiss Notice

Perverse interpretation of EU's AWR will be dowhfall of agencies!

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by Quietgenius, Jan 24, 2012.

  1. Any agency employee who suspects that an agency is acting
    improperly/unfairly and not within the spirit of the the EU's AWRs can
    claim unfair dismissal/unfair treatment and make a claim for this via
    the local INDUSTRIAL TRIBUNAL.
    Hence if the employee has shown
    work
    commitment, reliablity, punctuality, excellent work performance then the
    agency will have to come out with some good reasons as to why at around
    11-12 weeks that employee was dismissed/deregistered after showing a
    sterling
    work performance?????
    Is the exploitative agency going to say to
    the presiding judge/magistrate,
    " Me, Lord I did not want the worker to benefit
    from better terms and conditions despite his/her work performance so we
    sacked him/her!"???????[​IMG]

    So agencies out there bring it on and we, as agency workers
    will hit you with successful industrial tribunal cases who will most
    certainly rule in the worker's favour!!!!!
    Just think of David Cameron's latest announcement on developing a "fair and worthwhile economy!

    The nail is NOT IN THE COFFIN YET but we might witness a bonfire
    of malign, greedy, exploitative supply teacher agencies who may be
    SHUT DOWN!!!!!
    Just wait!

  3. ...well, lets hope it gets rid of some the less favourable ones out there.
    ...it goes without saying that some *** agencies with their arsey attitudes, unprofessional manner and poor knowledge of education will find a way to deprive honest folk of their dues.
    ...put it this way, if that kind of anti-avoidance nonsense happens to me (which BTW is an integral part of the AWR) when I get to 12 weeks (assuming that I am that lucky), I will end on the news myself, as I will have punched very hard the knobster consultant...the nail in the coffin me thinks!!!
     
  4. Any suppy teacher (agency worker) would do well to make an industrial tribunal claim against the agency for unfair treatment/unfair dismissal if "consultants" start the intimidating nonsense of de-registering/sacking/dismissing the supply teacher for no apparent reason other than a malign aND CORRUPT interpretation of the Agency Workers' regulations....

    between the school & the agency they can come up with loads of excuses/lies to get rid of supply at 11 weeks .Happened to me just before Xmas.I did 13 weeks Sept -dec but AWR only kicked in on Oct 1 so only 10 weeks counted then got the big Elbow & the teacher is still off What can I do?
     
  6. We need to hit them all with a massive flood of industrial tribunal court actions!
    Go to the CAB plus the local Industrial/employment tribunal court and get the relevant forms. Warn them first if you like with a legalese type letter (copy to the head) warning them of their perverse interpretation of the AW rules and let battle commence!
    Scare the pants off these bullies (for a change)...every single lie they utter must be SUPPORTED BY EVIDENCE AND I bet you provided your performance is ok these bullies will retract!
