Promise Training Centre, an English academy with centres in Hayes, Harrow and Tottenham sacked D at the beginning of the lockdown. Having employed her on a bogus self-employed contract, she was not entitled to furlough & left with no income at all.

 

The TEFL Workers’ Union has organised several days of actions to support D. We are asking Promise to compensate her with a month’s wage & to pay her the holiday pay that she didn’t receive while being falsely self-employed.

 

Read D’s personal account of the situatnion here: https://iww.org.uk/news/working-in-an-esol-training-centre-my-experience/

 

When: Monday 18th of May, all day. Start on Sunday night!

You can add this link, showing how an employment tribunal ruled in favour of falsely self-employed English teachers finding them to employees and, therefore, entitled to holiday and other employment rights.

For example:

 

Hi Fouad,

 

Promise Training Centre employed D on a false self-employed contract.

 

A 2019 employment tribunal has already shown that English teachers with similar false self-employed contracts were deemed to be employees. As a result, the company was made to pay all outstanding holidays to the teachers. Promise will also have to pay D’s holiday pay and a compensation for firing her.

 

Promise Training Centre, pay D now!

 

Or simply:

 

Hi Deborah,

Promise Training Centre’s harmful actions against D won’t be tolerated. Compensation must be paid to her, along with her holiday pay.

 

Shame on Promise Training Centre! Time to pay up!

 

 

SAY NO TO WAGE THEFT

PROMISE TRAINING CENTRE – TIME TO PAY UP!
