CALLING HOURLY PAID LECTURERS

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS?
 
Did you know that if you have worked as an HPL at UEL for 4 semesters in a row (2 years) you have employment rights?! This includes proper notice that your employment will be ending and the right to be redeployed to another position
if suitable work is available.
 
If you have worked for 8 semesters in a row (4 years) you are entitled to become permanent hourly paid (guarantee only 20 hours a year) which gives a few more rights and offered an interview for a permanent fractional position as an internal candidate, if a suitable post comes up. You may have more rights if you have worked for longer.
 
For more information on these and other rights, and to discuss your employment situation in confidence,
please contact:
 
Jill Daniels, UCU, part-time representative
 
@   j.daniels2@uel.ac.uk
 
 
All welcome to ask me for basic information of rights but I can only offer further advice if you are a member of UCU so please see:
http://www.ucu.org.uk/index.cfm?articleid=2283 to join online – it’s cheaper than you might think and has lots of benefits.
 
Please spread the word to other HPLs.
