Principals have been advised by the Ministry to set up an automatic payment for day relief teachers who work in their school on a regular basis.
This automatic payment will be for the number of days they usually work in a pay cycle. The automatic payment will be for at least the four weeks of shutdown, and will include the two weeks holiday period from March 30th to April 14th.
The Ministry has been clear that their first priority is to ensure income security and wishes to set up as many people as possible on automatic payments to provide peace of mind for teachers. If you need advice about how your automatic payment, please contact your local field officer.
