Have you already filled the space?

If not I wouldn't tell her you have as it might backfire on you - she may well get a job yet.

If she has signed a contract till Sept 2011 then she will have to pay you until then unless she gives you the contracted notice.
I can understand how frustrating it must be but as the previous person said she might yet get a job.

Easter is quite a way off, so I would be inclined to say nothing until nearer the time!!! Hopefully by then she will have a job sorted!!

the thing is i dont want to keep this parent anymore,she takes the mick. easter is when her little on starts nursery and have told her that i cant take her because have to take my own dd to nursery which is no were near our nursery.but she wont listen she says that she will sort it around what my los times are and she told me that i could do it if i went in the car which i wasnt going to do as its a nice walk to our nursery.this parent wants it all her way .

If you don't want the work then just give the required notice period on the contract and look for someone else to fill the place. Its not fair just stringing people along if you don't want the work anyway even after easter.
