Written answers (Question to Education)

Teachers are employed under a contract of employment with the Board of Management of a school or a Vocational Education Committee (VEC). A Board of Management/VEC, as employer, must provide his/her employee with a written statement of the particulars of the employee's terms of employment e.g. place and hours of work, responsibilities, disciplinary/grievance procedures etc, some of which are statutory requirements under the Terms of Employment (Information) Act 1994.
