I was the General Manager at the bar. I started on January 20th with a 3 month probation period. And today i was dismissed.
There is currently an investigation going on regarding monies going missing. And i think as I'm the new guy there thinking its me.
1-2-1s i have never had one in the time i have been there which would be with the director
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX check back later or will it be today?
hi sorry, i still have not heard anything back?
If the dismissal had nothing to do with any of the above exceptions then you would not be able to challenge it and your only protection would be if you were not paid your contractual notice period, because unless you were dismissed for gross misconduct, you would be entitled to receive your contractual notice period.
If you did not have a written contract in place you would be entitled to the minimum statutory notice period of 1 week.
what about if i do have a contract which states my probation period and notice times??
Your employer would either have to allow you to work that notice period and pay you as normal, or they will have to pay you in lieu of notice.
even if this states after probation period its 4 weeks notice?
so in my contract it states
after probation - 4years (1 months notice )
Also does an email saying we are extending you period count? it has to be an official document right? Surely i have to sign something or have a meeting to set new goals etc?
no my contract says 20th April,
and on 17th April he sent an email saying this
your probation period which expires on 20th April is being extended to allow for the investigation process. This extension is of course without prejudice to our general rights.
it doesn't state anywhere in my contract that they can extend my probation period.
also 1 last thing, when i was informed that i had to leave (today) i asked them to email me a letter confirming why. He said this is something we don't have to do as your on your probation and don't need a reason
ok no problem. but i do have a case regarding the notice period? and the probation extension as it does not state this in my contract
so what do you advise? talking to the company and explaining i should of been given 1 months notice? and they need to pay this?
