    Default Are Substitute Teaches Independent Contract Laborers

    My question involves independent contractors in the state of: VA
    I recently applied for a substitute teaching job with a public school system. I paid for my background checks, submitted all paperwork and attended the 'before you are entered into the subteacher database' required orientation that reviews school system policies. I (maybe incorrectly and this is what am I asking) was under the impression that if such an hourly employee is required to attend such an orientation, he/she is entitled to compensation. Today I was told not so, that you are deemed a contract employee who has not been entered into the system therefore you are not paid for today's orientation. However, if you do not attend, you are cannot work. Can the school system get away with this?

    A "contract employee" is just an employee with a contract, not an independent contractor.

    If you are being treated as an exempt employee, additional compensation is not required.

    If you will be covered by a CBA, ask your union rep if there is anything in the contract requiring compensation under these circumstances.
