All EU teachers have a EHIC card which covers them for medical care in all European Community countries. Non EU teachers or teachers placed in non EU countries have private medical insurance policies. Schools must make sure their car insurance covers their teacher
before letting them use a car.
Totalnannies.com will make every effort to locate an alternative teacher for the school if their teacher incurs illness or is involved in a serious accident which, in the judgment of totalnannies.com and with the advice of a physician, prevents the fulfillment of teaching responsibilites. Schools must recognize that a brief illness (cold, flu) may prohibit a teacher from performing his/her duties. Teachers should continue to be paid their weekly salary during these brief, unavoidable periods.
