Hi, I have exactly the same question as previously asked by somebody else here: http://www.justanswer.com/uk-employment-law/4opi3-unsatisfactory-month-probation-review-working.html And i received a letter of extending my probation 1 month after my six months probation period. In case case shall I sign the letter? and what's the implication of signing? Thank you.
If you need more detail please find below:
I am writing to you seeking assessment regarding my recent experience with my current employer, which I feel is a similar case I came across during my research in case law Przybylska v Modus Telecom Limited, UKEAT/0566/06/CEA
I am employed by a company providing corporate advisory services since 17th Sep 2012 and my contract entitled me to a probation period of six months, within which the company has the right to extend. However, I received no written notification or review of my performance during the six months. After seven months into this employment, I was told that my probation period will be extended by three months, calculated from the end of six months. I was sent a letter of extending the probation period for me to sign.
Hence I would like to understand what is my legal right in this situation, and what are the implications if I sign the extension of probation letter?
And if the firm decide to dismiss me, can I bring up a case similar to 4-375-8115?
Please let me know if I'd be benefit from a follow up appointment.
Thank you very much for your help on this
