1. Under what circumstances can an employee with less than 1 years service take an empoyer to a tribunal?
2. During a probation period at the beginning of employment (in our case 3 months)is it vital to follow the new 3 step disciplinary process when leading up to a termination for failure to complete a satisfactory probation? what are the consequences of not doing this?
3. Is it acceptable during a probation period to operate a ‘truncated’ version of the 3 step procedure ie notes of conversations with managers kept on file but not holding formal meetings with representatives allowed nor verbal, written & final warnings being given?
thankyou for your help!
