Contracts for Bank staff

Recommended Posts

Just wondered, does anyone have bank staff that they give contracts to. We have an ex member of staff who is taking a break, but will come in as and when we need her, what, if any, kind of contract does she need. If you do issue a contract or similar, I would love a cheeky sneaky peak!

I used to be given a '100 hours' contract, once my 100 flexible hours had run out ..... this coul be in a matter of weeks or months I was given another contract.

 

You could do a small amount of hours ? 5 or 10 then just renew contract hours once these have run out?

I've never given a contract to people who come in and help out now and again due to shortages - didn't know you had to?!

I do often wonder about their CRB though, for example my relief member of staff was an ex-employee who had her original check done with us - as she may only work a couple times a year I don't get a new one, what do others do in this instance?

Well Thumper, this is the spot I am in. I don't feel a contract is the right thing, but maybe a zero hours contract keeps them linked to the pre-school to enable all their previous experience, crb, intact. My thoughts were what would Ofsted say if she happened to be working that day. Do I keep her named named on all official papers as a member of staff? I guess I would.

 

I assume if the group used agency staff, then this would be covered by the agency.

I never 'got rid' of any of her paperwork or inform anyone that she had left, I keep her photo on the board as 'relief staff'

BUT

I also wonder about things like changes in curriculum as she doesn't keep up with the latest statutory stuff either, she is a fab practitioner who should never have left the workforce but she could earn more money cleaning and that is what she left us to do, as she needed the money. I can't expect her to keep current with all the latest requirements if I'm only going to use her 2 or 3 times a year for holiday/sickness cover.

You can guarantee she will be on duty when Ofsted call and whilst her practice is fab her knowledge will be out of date :(

We offer our relief staff opportunities to go on courses - we pay for the course (we've always had to pay for LA training) they are not paid whilst on the course though- but It's their choice to go, and they usually do .

 

They are always invited to in-house training sessions, nights out etc.

 

My 100 hours contracts would sometimes last over a year when I first started working there- it was part of a large company work place nursery, so I guess my contract had to fit in with all employees.
