Could you please confirm for how long you have worked with your current employer?
And how long was your probation period?
In your employment contract , is their probationary period clause , which provides how your employer is needed to confirm ?
Have you checked with with your employer regarding your probation completion ?
If employee would be liable for 10k recruiter fee , if this clause is incorporated in the employment agreement?
Could you please attach your employment contract here.
Thank you. I will go through it and will be with you shortly.
Could you please confirm exactly when you gave your notice to Leave ?
Your employment started on 19th May 2021
within the initial three month period you were allowed to terminate the employment contract by giving 4 weeks notice
As you gave your notice to Leave after the initial 3 months , now you have to give longer notice period.
Your employment contract says-
Clause Probation (D) -either party may terminate the employment relationship at any time during the initial three month period by giving 4 weeks notice.
the word used is "Initial 3 months" and not during probation period.
The employer has failed to convey that you have completed the probation, is a different issue.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
Thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
My pleasure . Have a good day.
