...and this is why I support Human Resource agencies (if they are not exploitative as well). If job seekers have specialized training in the roles they are hired for, no employer can ask them to carry out these menial tasks as if they're unskilled labor.

The agencies should also front for the employees as a bigger entity as opposed
to a single man army who can even be fired verbally. These are the issues the NLC should be tackling. As far as I know, only civil servants can fight for rights today. This should be replicated in the private sector as well.

His friend is not the problem. We need structures to protect workers and to reduce exploitation. That's what's lacking.
Those who accept to work in badly-structured organisations are part of the problem. The school didn't force the friend to work in the school.

The employer get right to ask you to do another work

It's just what you see in being employed

As long as it's a job, it's practiced in every country

Your employer has right to ask you to do anything as long as you are still working for him or her

“Your employer has right to ask you to do anything?”


I used to read somewhere they said a lot of mad people are on Nairaland.

This is one right here.

I guess your employer also has right to tell you to lick the pile in his a n u s

When it's not stated within the employee's job description? As an employer, if you're going to ask an employee to do a task outside their job description, then you should be willing to pay for that extra service.

Some people want to use their free time to develop themselves, why should you stop them from doing that simply because they work for you? It's not within their job description, so it shouldn't be made compulsory.

No very wrong

It's cos our country and those countries have weak labor laws

This is called exploitation. In advanced countries, any job you do outside what you are employed for comes with compensation ( that's if you consent to it)

So employer fit tell them make dem come him house to fetch water for am abi. Since employer can tell u to do anything.

Some of you guys sef. You have slave mentality

I'm a teacher in a private school and your post isn't far from true.
I got a call from the V.P last night( I actually removed myself from all the school's Whatsapp groups) and I didn't pick it because I knew what she was gonna say.
We go to work on most public holidays( even the mandatory one week mid term break that Lagos State gives) and this time around, I've decided to make a difference by calling their bluff.

Workers play a part in workplace exploitation too. It is why I don't pity them sometimes.

Think about it: you won't get a 10k per month salary if you didn't accept a 10k per month job.
In Nigeria, someone will get hired as a security guard, first day at work, he will be asked to wash cars and he'll do it without complaint. The day after, he will be told to trim flowers, soon he will be doing that for everyone there, thereby taking away job opportunities from car washers and gardeners. But when he complains about his boss being unfair, he will forget he is part of the problem too. He is the reason a gardener somewhere is jobless.

Nobody will use anybody if we all stick to what our job entails, but no, you wan prove say you dey hardworking pass Esau
You are absolutely right.

It is more than that. There are too few jobs and too many people chasing them. You say you no dey do, they will find someone who will, especially if they are not interested in standards like that.

Knowing your worth only works in a properly structured environment. Your average naija Jaga Jaga environment they will ditch you and move on to a lower tier that will eat their shit with both hands

It is also why foreigners are preferred in the west. Coming from poverty and struggle gives you a hard work ethic and an indifference to work place toxicity. You are there to make money first and foremost. Rights can come later, if at all.
Very unfortunate

I teach in a private school, the class I teach has four forms (A-D), and each form has an average of 30 students.

I was discussing with a friend of mine who is a teacher in a private school. I jokingly told him that as par there will be a public holiday tomorrow, that he would have a day rest when work hasn't started yet. That was how he told me that the school asked them to come around tomorrow, that they will be going for publication to distribute fliers around the environment.

Now my problem with this is that this particular school each arm has A to E (for example jss1 A to E) and they have more than 30 students in each class. So I was wondering why they are now troubling their teachers for something that isn't in their job description.

Like why can't the owner employ people to help him do the publication or go to radio or tv station for advert and the fact the teachers won't be paid for what they are doing as it is counter by the owner as part of their work. Is this behavior proper because it kinds of sounds annoying to me working in the sun on a public holiday just because of the owners selfish interest.

Your friend or you are a lazy greedy staff. What's wrong in publicising where you work and salary being paid to you? If the school increases and more money, your salary can increase too. We meet in school tomorrow

It's clear you are a very privileged child hence you don't understand. I salut anyone who would work in a bad environment rather than stay idle or steal or prostitute.
I would rather work in such a school than see my kids go hungry.
It is the duty of our society and those in charge to establish protections for the worker.

You are so sentimental and selfish. You have the mentality of a misguided slave. That's why you think that whoever says the truth benefits from it. I say the truth even when it doesn't suit my situation.

I am an orphan. My parents died poor. Nothing like inherited wealth for me. I lost interest in state universities and state Polytechnics because they are more corrupt than private and federal schools. I suffered for 10 years before I got an opportunity to attend a good university. But during the 10 years, people like you around me complained about what they were facing in state schools. Each time I reminded them that they knew the school system before they accepted the school, they claimed I was very privileged. A few of them that know my background could not make the same claim, but they simply said, "Not everybody thinks like you".

I graduated last year. I am still searching for a job. But I have rejected 3 jobs because of the structures of those organisations and for the fact that they don't pay well. People like you will accept the jobs, complain about the poor salary and the bad management. Yet, you will attack me when I blame you for accepting the job. This is also the mentality many of you use in marriages. You choose an incompatible partner or marry when you are not ready. You do this because of societal pressure. Then, you complain in the marriage.

If you don't want to frustrate yourself, be patient in life. After my secondary school, I waited for 10 years before I could get admission to a university. But I entered and graduated from a good university that has at least upgraded my life in terms of knowledge. I graduated last year. Because of that university, I got my passport and have visited a few African countries. If I had attended those public schools and complained like you people, I would have graduated many years ago. But I doubt if I could have travelled out of Nigeria by now.

Those who came up with the proverb that a patient dog eats the fatest bone are right. I attended a very poor public primary school. I attended a very bad public secondary school, where teachers hardly entered classes. If you check my history on this forum, you may come across a comment where I stated that the three senior classes in the secondary school I attended had only one Maths teacher who entered my class only four times in 3 years. The teacher entered my class twice in my SS1, once in my SS2 and once in my SS3.

Truth must be said...

Most (not all) private school owners exploit their staff.

That's why it's better self employed than working like an elephant and eating like a rat for a private school.

As usual the slave mentality continues. That is why your country is a hell hole.

“See your kids go hungry”? Maybe you should have developed yourself first so your kids won’t be at the mercy of a Nigerian boss that doesn’t give a damn about your well being and continue to exploit you till you can no longer breathe.

If “child support payment” was mandatory in Nigeria, some of you wouldn’t be breeding kids like rats.

As stated above, some of us create avenue for these exploitation.

Take bold step, don't go, confront the school management should they query your absences. But mind you, action has consequences.
They won't even query you if they know your worth because they won't wanna trigger you into making a decision to leave. I can tell you for free that private schools' owners are suffering and smiling..........most schools lack teachers in terms of quality and figures.

People hardly read terms of service before they do anything.
If it's not part of their TOS before joining the organization, they can sue if they want to sack them for not doing what is not part of their job description..



Anyways, technical jargons aside, it's not right to allow teachers to also be the ones doing that. But they don't have a choice because no job in naija.
how can coming on holidays to share fliers be part of their job description. This is a general public holiday
