Partner Victoria Willson comments on the implicit pressure on teachers to work beyond their contracted hours, in HR Magazine.

“Hours are contractually-set, but this matter is arguably more about whether teachers’ good will is being taken advantage of."

"While it would be hard to fire someone for just working their allotted number of hours, teachers might well have a case for arguing they haven’t been promoted if they ‘just’ work their stated hours. That makes this a potentially complex area.”

Victoria's comments were published in HR Magazine, 21 February 2023, and can be found here.
