When you hear the agency that laid you off “because of COVID” is currently hiring around your level. 😢

I know that feeling, but also remember a lot of agencies are appearing to actively look and are not actually looking. My old company (insider) word for word said “We posted that because we need to look like we are doing well even if we may not be.”

exactly. 🤦‍♀️

Sorry OP. Sometimes the place just isn’t the right one for you. Sending you good vibes and hopefully you can look back in a few years and see it as a blessing.

You can sue them. A redundancy becomes invalid if someone performing the same role is hired, unless they can prove the salary equivalent increase in revenue. Which is unlikely these days.

Very curious about this. Has anyone tired this? What kinda lawyer would you call? What are some prep work you need to do? (Never was in this situation but like I said, this is a very interesting topic) Thank you in advance.

In the same boat. Sometimes it’s best to just not look back. Although it’s tough when you see the job posting lol.

That sucks, sorry to hear it. I guess it’s better than agencies who take millions in PPP, lay people off a “because of Covid” and then just keep the money to buy pinball machines or cases of LaCroix or whatever the fuck...

Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.

We are experiencing more behavioral issues from all students bringing our Administration, Middle School Building Principal to create a Discipline Team. I am on the team. I am a SPED teaher. Youth's emotional worth and ability to learn communication, working, socializing with peers during Middle School especially, was ceased. Our students, due to COVID-19, are acting nearly 2 years behind their maturity level. This is a fact across the USA. Guessing, across the world.
