The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has released a list of teachers who are set to miss this month’s salary for failing to meet employment requirements. The list features newly employed teachers (who have not received any salaries, so far) for failing to submit their casualties.
According to the commission, a newly employed teachers must have his/ her casualty form filled by the head of institution and the teacher and then sent to TSC headquarters for appointment onto the payroll.
“Upon employment, the teacher is required to report to the duty station within two weeks from the date of posting. The head of institution should then promptly submit a Casualty Return to the TSC headquarters,” reads the employment guidelines; in part.
Without the casualty form (see image below) being filled properly and sent to TSC, a teacher will not be put on the TSC payroll and will hence miss salaries.
Most of those affected are intern teachers who were hired in November, 2019. By end of March, 2020 a total of 2,159 intern teachers were yet to be placed on the payroll.
“Some of these pending cases have either one or two documents missing or were not properly filed. Once that is done we shall have all of them on payroll,” TSC head of communications Beatrice Wababu had said.

LIST OF TEACHERS WHOSE FILES ARE MISSING CAUSALITIES
The list at our disposal shows some close to 400 newly appointed teachers whose files are without casualties.
The list contains the affected teachers’ TSC numbers, names, work station and payroll processing status (indicating that the casualty has not been received). The TSC payroll is closed usually by 15th of every month and teachers can then receive their salaries from 20th, onward.
Meanwhile, the commission has commended teachers for being in the forefront in fighting the covid-19 pandemic.
“As the campaign against spread of Covid-19 enters a critical stage, we are happy with teachers’ compliance with government directives in this war,” says Wababu.
She adds that TSC is still offering services at headquarters and teachers can reach the commission via Email; [email protected] or hotlines 0722208552 and 0777208552.
