Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Did your contract say that your successful probation has to be confirmed?
ok but what does your contract say about your probation - does the employer need to confirm you have successfully passed it?
So your notice period after the probationary period is 1 month?
You will not be able to challenge the dismissal itself because you are not protected against unfair dismissal until you have at least 2 years’ service with the employer. So they can dismiss you for more or less any reason, whether you have passed your probationary period or not.
Your only rights will be in relation to the notice period you are due. If the probationary period was stated as a fixed period, such as 6 months, and there was no mention of the employer having to confirm your successful completion first, then it is assumed that the probation is passed after those 6 months. It means that even though the employer is inly holding a meeting now, the probation has already finished once the initial 6 months were up, so you would now be entitled to the longer notice period.
There is no minimum legal time limit, they can ask you to come to a meeting on the spot if they wanted to
you are welcome, all the best
