I have just been ‘laid off’ from my job after only being with the company for a 2 week period.
My contract states I was on a 3 month probabtionary period. I received no warnings prior to this and was called in to the office at the end of the day to be told I had a great personality, great at managing the team but I had not grasped the inhouse IT system quickly enough and, if I was kept on the company would have to pay the ‘finers fee’ of several hundred pounds to the agency.
Are they allowed to do this? I have also not been given anything in writing from them but was just told to clear my desk and leave.
Thank you,
Pixie Dunne
