Hi, I hope your day has been good for you.
I have been to the office today to return keys etc as requested and collected my things including my employment contract.
Employment Contract states that "employment in this position is bound by the Education Services (Post Secondary Education) Award 2010, the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and all company policies and procedures." Classification of Teacher level 12.
I asked my manager if I could have a copy of the company policy for redundancy and she stated that it was as per the award for teachers. She also said that they (the company) were very good and based the redundancy on Full Time not Part Time. (As previously stated, I went back 18 hours a week for 4 weeks, reduced hours on doctors instructions to try and ease back but was unable to continue at all after that time). As I had not ever signed a contract or agreement for PT could that be the case??
I have looked at the teachers award and it refers back to NES which doesn't mention period of notice required to be given by employer so I still need to know if the 2 weeks pay in lieu of notice is correct or should it be 4 as per notice I am required to give.
So There are 3 questions from this:
1. Is the 2 weeks pay in lieu of notice is correct or should it be 4 as per notice I am required to give?
2. Would they be able to base the payment on the PT pay?
3. Also, am I allowed to work in that notice period?
Many thanks in anticipation,
Kind regards, Ann
