  1. Information follow up. Took the advice given by the wise on here, just let the situation go and put it down as a bad experience. Ex-employer finally sent a letter informing me that the probation was terminated due to "I had not made any noticeable production line efficiency improvements in the two months I was there and all my suggestions were long term". I am a Process Engineer so long terms improvements is my profession!! Utter rubbish really as I did make improvements but couldn't get anyone to understand that a structure needs a good foundation before you starting building
  2. Thank you for taking the trouble to write a great post and for putting it in a way that can be understood. Looking at this forum from this side of the fence. As others have mentioned when people come here they are in a situation where they need help and I would imagine not in a position where they can pay for it. Sometimes they need just that arm around the shoulder to convince them they are doing the right thing. This is where this forum is so great and the information given so important. Unfortunately though there are also people on it like Disgruntled who only provide
  3. Good advice and you are right I am the better person - it's just sad that they couldn't be honest about it all I would have accepted that as it would have been best for the business As it was I did everything they asked me to without any support,made improvements,gave them over 100 ideas where they could improve their business and potentially through contacts secured a large long term contract with one of my former employers (one of the largest companies in the world) All in less than 3 months,not hard to see why I am aggrieved and shocked by the termination is it?
  4. Thank you Beatrixx and sometimes nothing is better than getting first hand experience. Really pleased for you that you achieved your career goals and just one post like yours does make asking the question worth while. As an aside and only found out this morning, due to manning issues and unexpected orders two new production starters being employed middle of next week. Before Christmas the directors were adamant that even with a bare bones workforce there would be no more recruitment. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
  5. And this is the reason why people like me ask the questions we ask - we do not know what any of this means or what the implications are. If we did we would not be on here would we? Please try remembering that - people ask for help
  6. Couldn't remember what my old user name was had not been on for over 7 years. During my last time on here you were one of those that provided me with a lot of help and support and it went a long way to resolving various issues. What's sad about all of this is (and it's only become deal made by others) is the perception I am not "hearing" the advice, as that's far from the truth and I have not challenged any of it given. All I have looked to do is get as much of it as I can - hence why I have been researching different avenues SgtBush yes you did tell me but that doesn't mean t

  8. You won't cause offence so fire away What's being missed through all of this is at the outset I had no awareness what Sangies background was and because I asked for others advice,she took offence to it. There has been no disputing the information provided anywhere throughout this topic and her information has been valuable, but because I requested if any more could be added she went on the offensive. Remember I have contacted various professional bodies who have all given conflicting advice, am I in the wrong to ask for more so as to work out what is actually correct? Fro
  9. Think a couple of people are missing what's actually gone on here. My first time on here for a long time and I do not have a clue of anyones background. i
  10. For someone who doesn't think they are aggressive you could do with reading your last post through - nothing but unjustified personal attacks. Not once have I questioned this site and have nothing but respect for it. Neither have I questioned you,I just asked for other opinions but you seem to take it that your opinion is the only one that matters. I think your last comment considering your line of work is disgraceful and shows what an opinionated,up your own a**e kind of person you are. "just for information....now i am being aggressive....i am beginning to think that i unde
  11. Firstly thank you all for your advice Sangie595 - You opened your comments with "No. You don't understand." which I do find aggressive for someone who is asking a genuine question. In addition to this as pointed out by Spudzulu I never demanded anything from you and my question on asking your experience was again genuine. There are a lot of self-appointed experts on the internet who read something once then regurgitate it thinking they are the bees. As you your post count is less than 600 and I am a new visitor how am I to know that you are an expert or that this is your fi
  12. Thank you for taking the time to reply but please try to be a bit less aggressive - can I please ask what your professional experience is? As it stands Acas and after todays visit, CAB have advised that I use my employers appeal process as they both believe that Due Process has not been followed. This has also been supported online by two advisory HR practioners and in addition 2 Employment law firms are interested in the chain of events I have submitted. The ball is now in my court but I would still appreciate information from others.
  13. Yes sadly that's the way I see it and one of the things about modern employment law. One of my colleagues has now informed me that due to a sudden order increase they have to take more workforce on. I felt they were trying to run undermanned anyway without this am now thinking I have been sacrificed so as they can take on two directs. Who knows,but thank you for your help
  14. I believe the 2 year rule only applies to Unfair Dismissal as Ethel pointed out Wrongful Dismissal does not have these restrictions and can be applied from day one of employment. The points I am trying to gain information for is they have not followed Acas guidelines for the review and termination process e.g Notification in advance of a scheduled meeting and intent to dismiss. This has been taken from the firstpracticemanagement.co.uk Probation - Contract termination section Whilst an employee cannot claim unfair dismissal in the first year of service, which has now
  15. Hi Ethel No that was not discussed Ethel is correct and Wrongful Dismissal is the avenue that I am looking at. I believe my ex-employer acted outside employment guidelines as: The reviews were not scheduled, nor documented and content signed for confirmation of what was discussed. (importantly no targets were set so what was the measurement for suitability?) If they felt I was under performing this should have been discussed, improvement actions agreed, opportunity to improve given and all documented. Notice of termination pending should have been given to a
