Thank you for the additional information. The reality is that there are no laws stopping them from doing this. I guess that until they confirm to you that you have successfully passed the probationary period then they can extend it. What I would say and just as a word of caution, is that if it is not too big a deal I wouldn't bother taking issue with it. The reason I say this is because until you have 2 years service with an employer you don't have any rights to claim unfair dismissal against your employer. So the reality is that they can simply dismiss a member of staff even if the reason is arbitrary. They also don't have to follow any procedure as they cannot be held liable as you would not have any right to claim. What I would note is that it is poor performance on their part not to follow the timelines which they have set out however, this is just unfortunate and not actually legally actionable.
I hope this has helped.
