Supply teacher payments for cancellations during lockdown
The Teacher Relief and Contract Employment Register (TRACER) has advised that supply teachers it booked and then cancelled as a result of the Greater Brisbane COVID-19 lockdown should have received payment for the cancelled days in this fortnight’s pay.
The QTU advocated for the payment of cancelled days to supply teachers and welcomed the Director-General’s instruction to honour bookings, despite the lockdown.
