the work is quite clear: if an employee, through no fault, because he is sick or in the military, so he has a right to a minimum of three months to a full continued payment of wages. In the reverse conclusion this means that an employer may not force anyone missed work time to catch up on.
So far the theory. The practice is, at least for teachers in the Canton of Zurich is different. Although not a teacher, teaching must make up hours, if the flu has struck. There is, finally, vicars. But meetings, school events or developments will be charged according to the new professional order, the is for the summer of 2017, minus hours, if a teacher fails. It is only when the non-culpable absence takes longer than 30 days, all missed hours of work as done.
the teachers ' Association (ZLV) which is a huge Nuisance. "From our point of view, the scheme is not lawful," says ZLV-President Christian Hugi. "Moreover, it is completely unrealistic." A teacher miss a meeting or a School event, he could not make up for this easily, especially since the guidelines of what is allowed to write a teachers working hours are relatively strict. Not successful, the hours, account balance, this could have unpleasant effects, so Hugi: "Has a teacher, bad luck, and it may be cumulative, five, ten, twenty hours, then you must take in the next school year an additional task, although it makes a full workload and without the disease of the hour is To have met."
The trade Union SSP / VPOD shares the criticism of the ZLV. The absences regulation mangle it to "balance and Moderation", as stated in a Letter from the VPOD. Even more: As vicars often have to step in at meetings and events for the patients and colleagues, history of the Canton, as an employer, in effect, double the work.
Anything else would be more complicated
The education Directorate looks, however, are in the right. Per lesson will a lump sum be credited to a working time of one and a half hours. This is apparent in the case of a full workload already per week, 42 lessons, argues Marion Völger, Head of the People's Supervisory school authority: "Would count in addition to more hours, it would afford the affected teachers over time." Legally, the regime applicable was not correct; any other solution would be administratively complicated. Nevertheless, the Board of Education recommend to the school principals, have the time to be replaced by pragmatic and not insist on a few missed hours of catching up to do.
For ZLV-President Hugi is not a satisfactory solution: "It can't be, to apply to that school school other absences rules and the requirements to be bypassed." The more so, as the professional order is actually the opposite aim, namely, the uniform terms and conditions of employment.
conversations with the Board of Education have not led but more: "We found no solution." For the city of Zurich SP-a certain day, Monika Wicki, this is a scandal: "The education Directorate remains in a legal gray area, and does nothing. Almost every teacher is affected." Indirectly, the pressure to come in sick to tuition increases. Wicki makes now political pressure. On Monday she has filed, together with Christoph Ziegler (GLP, Elgg), and Hanspeter Hugentobler (EPP, Pfäffikon) is a postulate, the "urgent repair calls to work" in the job order.
professional order controversial
The absences of control is not the only item in the job order that makes for discontent and criticism. Controversial is also the thirty minutes, which is Directorate of Education to the teachers for the pre - and post-teaching course, for example. From the point of view of the teachers Association, the is much too little. However, in this question, no agreement with the Board of Education is in sight. A further construction site, the age relief, which was reduced to about 57-Year-old to earlier to about a quarter. To do this, he has also submitted a parliamentary motion in the cantonal Parliament, however, languishes for over a year on the agenda; the governing Council requested, reject it. "Also the education Director of just sits," says Wicki.
as for the Absences, would remain the ZLV is the possibility of a lawsuit. Just need to go find a teacher or a teacher who would be willing, therefore, to court. And it was not easy, concedes Hugi, as there is often only a couple of hours to catch up on a year: "most of The Concerned have to do enough different, so you can arrange somehow." The satisfaction of not serve the. (Tages-Anzeiger)
