Late cancellation = late paycheck

For the last two months, I had a scheduled job on January 26th. I even rejected a better job offered yesterday for this date at a higher paying district because I was already booked

Low and behold, the job just got cancelled this afternoon.

This means I might not be in town to turn in my time sheet which is due on the 26th, so I would have to wait a whole month to get paid. They have been inflexible in the past.

I now have to decide if I should wait for another job tomorrow at this lower paying and more distant district, which means possibly turning down a better job as a result, or should I take the better job and beg for an extra day past the deadline.

I am scheduled in this district on the 27th.

I would have turned it in yesterday, but they also cancelled that job on me.

I decided to take the lower paying job at a school about six miles from the district office.

I will lose about $20 , but at least I will get paid on time.

Life of a sub

Just like you, I used to serve multiple districts. Of course I was younger back then and thinking like I was gonna run out of jobs if I don't sign up to be in a sublist for at least 2. It got complicated when people wanted to book me besides doing it thru automated systems. Now, I'm getting enough jobs as I commit to just one.

So, if you turn in your time sheet on

the 26th, does that mean you get paid on the last day of the same month? Consider yourself very lucky. In my cheap-o district, we wait up to two months for a paycheck after an assignment. I won't see any money for days worked in January until the last day of February. That's the policy, and it sucks. When I questioned it, the sub coordinator became annoyed with me and came back with, "That's what it is. Do you want to sub or not?"

And, there's nothing like a last minute cancellation on a long scheduled job. I had 3 at the last minute in November. No shortage of ways to make life difficult for subs.

We turn in time sheets ending on the 23rd by the 26th just three days later.

They mail our checks on the 5th of the next month.

Only my lowest paying district offers jobs every day, which is also the farthest from my house.

The other two combined probably offer at 75%, so to guarantee work, I need to accept $20 to $30 lower pay each day , including gas.

It makes for some difficult decisions.

Our time sheets are kept in each office in the district. We just fill them out (or the secretary does and we check them). I'm easy for them, since so far this year, I've been kept busy at the middle school. Day 5 this week tomorrow.....

I expect you've done this, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Have you checked your state's labor laws regarding pay?

You can call the state office involved without giving your name and report a violation if the district is out of compliance.

My district pays on the 22nd and the pay period is from the 11th to the 10th--so 12 days to get payroll processed.

That really stinks. The school system I work for does not require subs to turn in time sheets. The lead secretary tracks our jobs and turns those in to payroll.

Timesheets

I sub for 10 districts and only one of them has time sheets. This district uses an outsourcing company that wants the electronic time sheets submitted via e-mail by noon every other Friday. That means I have to e-mail it before I leave the house in the morning or send it from the school. I subbed at this district on a Friday and had to request a computer log-on to email the time sheet. Luckily, I had a prep period and lunch before noon, so I had time but that is not always the case.
