Could someone please advise me on the following:

We have a chap who currently on Probation with us who we are going to dismiss but I need to know the best way forward for this.

He is currently on sick leave! but we have not heard from him for 9 days know, we have no sick note from him and have not had anybody else call on his behalf, he has had a number of days of sick during his probation period. Generally he not up to this job, he struggles and is now costing the company money to put right his errors.

What I need to know is can we dismiss him while he is still on sick or do we wait until he comes back to the office but at this moment we have no idea when that will be?

Please help us with this.

Many thanks
Tina Jeffery
