How do you legally handle having your plan time taken for the 4th week in a row? Each day each week,, an announcement comes on saying it has been canceled and we have to keep our students. Union is not doing anything. We have such a shortage of teachers, our special, electives, encore, whatever you may call it have been put into classrooms because we are so short staffed. How can I legally fight for my time without union backing?
Are any other teachers told to be at work before you start getting paid? We don’t get paid until 7:45. Every week we are told to be there earlier and earlier. It is now to 7:10 and staying until 4pm. We stop getting paid at 3:15. Does anyone else have this problem ?
Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
Who here is following Disha Ravi’s case? Is our union that fragile that this insecure govt can’t tolerate a small time activist to charge her with sedition? Picked up from Blru and taken to Delhi without following protocol? What a bunch of effing clowns in power? Is this what this PM and his 56 inch chest stand for?
Who are waiting for the collective disconnect more than the 13 Dec compensation revision letters?

Some employees received a retention bonus/contract recently. Makes me feel they aren't going to do anything else to keep up with the market inflation, or attempt to retain the rest of the employees. Good time to exit or pray they do a market correction with the year end hikes?

Hello all, how can we approach the gender pay gap at our respective employers? I know I’ve mentioned it before but it seems to make Culture & Talent, as well as Legal cringe. I don’t expect them to publish salaries, nor do I wish this, I just want to see what steps we can take to make our voices heard. Let’s open the floor up for ideas and suggestions!!

What are the potential career paths and exit ops do I have as a Technology Risk Consultant intern? I want to get into a PM role later in my career, will I be able to leverage the project management skills I build in this internship role in the future?
Struggling with an offer I got for an industry position. The base undervalues me, raises are low, but total comp is higher than I would get this year with my raise if I stayed (although it couldn’t compete with my expected comp next year). I’ll have better WLB, which I really need for various reasons, but so scared to give up everything I know and that the hiring company was putting on a show during the interview process.

Looking at an offer from a Series E startup and trying to figure out if this is worth it. I’m at 2 years post-MBA at a Big 4 (current TC right around 200k). New TC would be right around 200k, but would be like a 25% reduction in base - I like the role and the team but I dunno if that kind of base reduction is common for consulting exits? I see a lot of TC improvements, but wondering if those folks see a base jump too? Thanks!
Passed the CIA. 🍾 I'm rolling deep in the letters... CPA, CFE too. What should I do next?
PI plaintiff’s attorneys: Is anyone else dealing with adjusters coming in with extremely low offers and using COVID as leverage to settle?
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
