So much for all National’s fine words about probation periods and job creation. Today’s Dominion reports that ReStart will not be available for “those who were sacked, including those who lost their jobs under the new 90-day probation law.”
So the conditions for three months “probation” are that you cannot ask for reasons for dismissal in writing, cannot appeal against unfair dismissal, and no matter if it is unfair you do not qualify for any benefit.
At least National’s 1991 Employment Contracts Act kept grievance rights. This is worse.
