Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
It appears the last two questions I helped with were not rated and I have not been credited for the time I spent helping you, can you please rate these before I proceed with this query, many thanks:
Hi there, this one is still outstanding, could you please check:
Sorry to have to mention it but without a rating I am basically giving out free advice which would make my time on here pointless.
Anyway going back to your query – an employee cannot extend the probationary period themselves. A probation is an employer’s own internal performance measurement tool and only they can extend it, subject to having that right within the contract or having the employee’s consent. So you are entirely within your rights to refuse to allow an extension to the probation and pass it, even if he has not fulfilled the necessary criteria or requested an extension himself.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
