Hi, My fiancee was just fired during her probationary period. Her boss, HR manager, and GM all had nothing but praise, but the owner has pushed this, as she has been unhappy with her performance. Yet all the other managers have given her nothing but praise. Its a very strange situation - and to be honest i am pretty emotive right now. Main question for people that might know or work in HR - not just speculation: * During the probationary period - can you be fired without any feedback (or in the this case, where she was given positive feedback from everyone around her bar the owner)? So effectively being told "not meeting expectation as the reason", but everyone has said she was doing a fine job? * Who should i potentially speak to about unfair dismissal (lawyers etc) - or is it just not worth the effort/ no case because she was on probationary period. Really appreciate anyone that might be in HR or a HR lawyer that might know more on this subject. Needless to say my fiancee was completely blinded sided by this.
