Severance pay from the company
My company is established under shops and Establishment Act and has over 2500 employees in the organisation.
I joined from 1st August 2016 and while being under probation 6 months, on 4th January 2017 they gave me a performance improvement plan pip - inability to clear which they told me that it would result in either Termination or disciplinary action.
I signed the PIP even when I was in probation period. Now after the PIP has been over they ask me to leave the organisation and refuse to pay me any severance pay.
As per the grade in my offer letter I am at assistant manager level of the company.
They told me that they will not pay my severance pay since I was already told about it, but will give me a clean exit from the company.
My questions are
-Is giving a PIP under probation period training is legal?
-My notice period under probation is for one month and post probation is 2 months, the confirmation is just 4 days away. Can you please guide me the sections under which I can ask my organisation to pay me my severance pay to sustain my next 2 months or more of livelihood.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
