This is how I used to do it. Keep a record, take it back later. Now I can't because they need 5 days notice and form signed by the principal. It's insipid and backwards.Our open evening is tomorrow 5pm-8pm. I'll be at college until 8pm but I'll take the time back and go home at lunch time on Friday.
We always do this too, any time worked over our hours is claimed back in lieu. Always worked it out amongst ourselves but this year they've clamped down and now have to have an hours sheet signed off by HOD whenever I do any extra time/shopping etc. Waste of everyone's timeI'm employed term time only plus 10 days so anything I do outside my core hours I knock off my 10 days. This includes the open evening - which I am happy to do as I quite enjoy it.
So far it has all been based on my honesty and no one has ever checked up on me - I keep a record in my planner. But I am sure that eventually the academy HR will catch up with me and make up some impossible system for me to adhere to!!!
It can be a nightmare taking time owed so we do whatever we can to avoid accruing it. If something can't be done in our regular hours then it can wait until we're next in. We don't do any shopping in our own time either, if we need shopping its done during our working day.
At my previous school we used to claim back time and a half (because it is overtime and unsocial hours). You will probably have a battle to get it but you should try!Hi All
Please if any of you could give me an advise on if technicians stayed for Open evening & Morning, can they claim the time back? I just want to double check if that is not a requirement for technician to stay behind on the open evenings and if we does, can we claim the time back? Thanks in advance
Love it when management interference overcomplicates everything!We always do this too, any time worked over our hours is claimed back in lieu.
