I've accepted a role as year 3 teacher this year ,on condition that it is on a contract with the LEA and not working for the agency. I worked at the school for three days then was asked to do an observed lesson. I passed the interview and the Head asked me 2 days later if i would like the job. I then worked in year 3 with full role and responsibilities until the end of term with the agency. I asked for a contract but was told I didn't need one at that point. I also explained to a member of SLT that I would only accept the role in Sept if it was on contract not agency as my annual salary with the agency is only £10K pro rata. I do an annual tax return. I was told to inform my agency via the 3rd person , the head wasn't contactable at this time , that the role would be with LEA not the agency. I was obviously overjoyed at this . I spent 6 days at 3/4 hours day during the holidays sorting out my new classroom and that of the NQT in the cohort. I did this for free . On Friday I was informed by my agency contact that I needed to register with the EWC and " had i got a DBS?" .Coincidentally I had already taken my DBS forms to the LEA to be done 3 weeks earlier, thank fully.AND that I would be working for the agency for a further 20 weeks BEFORE I am eligible for an LEA contract .. this is for a max of 16 weeks . I was told that this had been sorted out by the Director of the agency and the school during the holidays and I wasn't consulted. My question is this.. What if any legal redress do I have ? I do not want to take on the full role of year for another 20 weeks at the rate of pay I have already been paid and also no holiday or sick pay Its the same rate whether I do one off days in a secondary school , no planning marking or meetings etc.. I believe this arrangement has been decided in lieu of the finders fee. Please advise? I am not in the Union because on £10K I have had to strip out all my outgoings to a bare minimum. I have had no pay since the end of July and I am very upset about this.Im in school tomorrow for a training day prior to children arriving on Thursday .
