I was hired as a full-time instructor at a for-profit college

Customer Question

I was hired as a full-time instructor at a for-profit college in Virginia. My hours have fluctuated between 36-40 hours. I have a good work record, no attendance problems and very good student and supervisor evaluations. We teach courses in 5-week modules. I understand that in some cases enrollment may be low in courses and I may not be able to get 40 hours, however, this module I will only have 27 hours. My schedule is split having two classes from 8:00 am - 1:00 p.m. My next class is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Not only is this schedule a hardship on me financially but I also have to drive 140 miles (35 miles one way) a day due to the split schedule. I was not notified of the change in this schedule prior to the Spring Break which ended on 4/3/2016. The change in hours is not consistent with my employment letter which stated that I was hired as a full-time instructor. Can you provide me with feedback on this situation? Frances Dukes

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. In terms of your employment letter, were you guaranteed a specific minimum number of hours for a specific period of time (i.e. 1 year, etc...)
