Long time ago, I was working for a local CCIU unit. I went to many of their special education preschool classes, special education classes in schools, LG - life was great. Then, Someone Up There God Knows Who (I hate school politics and don't care who makes those decisions) decided that they need to save money, so they outsourced and hired this company called Source for Teachers. (I hear it's a pretty big company with at least other locations in NJ) I cannot begin to tell you what things this company got away with. I was lucky, I was spared SUPER terrible things up until now. However, listening to other employees of this copany I've heard stories of how they would appy there, and wait for months and months. The company would lose their documents, lie to them and do other kinds of either illegal things (imho) or simply so careless that they left a whole lot of frustrated employees unable to make money, sometimes for months and months. ok. Here is what happened to me. Funny, because since Nov 1 of last year , since I quit schools, I've been so sick many days, that I hardly worked 3-4 times. Besides, so many schools where I subbed hold so many painful memories that I specifically crossed them off my list, leaving just a few schools where I didn't have any negative experiences. (painful experiences for me is seeing how special needs kids are being treated either in a neglected way or using verbal or emotional abuse) So, this last time, May 8 I took an assignment in school, special education class. I come in, the secretary sends me to that class (I don't think I worked for this particular teacher before). When I get to the class the teacher and aides are surprised to see me. They say no one is missing and my services are not needed. OK, that happens once in a while. I come back to the office and tell them they need to send me somewhere else in school. The office tells me they have no place for me in school that day. Now, that IS surprising. In schools with multiple special education classrooms usually there is usually somewhere where a sub could be used. ok, from many years of subbing I learned not to argue. I leave the school. I sense that I need to call my company Source For Teachers, however, I'm so fed up with them, I don't want to hear their voices Besides, I THINK, there is a rule that if you pick up an assignment and not needed in that school (meaning, it's not your fault), you still get paid. However, don't quote me on this, though, I've worked for multiple Substitute companies before, so, maybe this wasn't their rule. Anyway, the next day I see that they canceled me out for that day anyway, so that means no one paid me. Wouldn't you feel like everything is OK at this point? well, a few days ago I get a letter from the Substitute company, stating that this school who didn't find me an alternative assignment, said they are not satisfied with me and don't wan to see me in their school any more. This did sound frustrating, however, I'm used even to that as well. Substitute teachers and aides in that company are usually treated like a piece of s***, so I'm just surprised how come I hear in so many schools that sooooo many subs jobs are left unfilled. Very easy, just put 2+2 together. If you hire a company that treats their employee like that, what else do you expect!! Anyway, the next day or so, I get 2 identical emails from that company, that sound pretty urgent, saying: ================= According to my system, we sent you a (ESS) Employee Arbitration Agreement form on 6/7/2018 which still requires your attention. In order to expedite our processes, we're requesting that you complete the form online. Please click the link below to complete the form. ================= I just signed it. I don't care about Source for Teachers any more. I should just quit, I'm so fed up with them. However, I would like to know, what does it all means, simply to know the whole truth. It sounded like a document that you sign saying you have no complaints against this company Question What do you think it really means? That they know they do illegal kinds of things, so they want to protect themselves against substitute teacher's complaints?
