Dear member,

The replies to your questions are as below:

Is it acceptable to terminate an employee when they are on probation?

Reply: - Yes

Is it possible for an employee to initiate a lawsuit against the company in this situation?

Reply: - What is the situation?

Well gentleman, please give sufficient information. Confirm to us whether you have raised the query for yourself or for someone else. When did the recruitment take place? What was the probation period and why the probationer was fired by the company? What misconduct did he/she commit? Was the termination because of the underperformance? Before termination did the company give any warning or chance to improve? If yes, what type of correspondence did take place between a terminated employee and the company?

Furthermore, what were the conditions of separation for a probationer mentioned in the appointment letter? Did the company adhere to those conditions or not?

The companies hire so that they can maintain operational continuity or business growth. They do not hire to fire. There must be compelling reasons. Yes, occasionally the termination could be because of the wrong hire. However, it is a different case.

Thanks,
