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!
What to do:
Email the owners of Promise, Fouad Hashi and Deborah Walton:
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.
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!
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!
