I am starting a job. I am allocated 30 hours to be used over the rest of the school year to train staff and work with students. I am in the process of signing up with the agency. Am I allowed to start the work now (keeping track of the hours I do) and then bill it at different times once I officially am signed on? Another question along the same lines-The agency requires that I send in weekly schedules the week before. The problem with this is that teachers or students’ availability might be difficult to predict a week before. Is it ok if I again keep track and the hours and then bill it or the original schedule time?
Both of your questions depend on how particular the agency is regarding these issues, often they don’t care, and they allow it. It would be best for you to speak to the person in charge to get a better picture of what they allow and what they don’t.
