    I was wondering about RAH as well. Been ages since she's posted and I miss her posts. Hope she's OK.

    Sorry about your DH ...

    You could just make sneaky little edits... a typo here, a typo there... it will just look like mistakes, but make them look really unprofessional *sneaky* 😉

    I'm so sorry Turq... That is awful. Especially with you on mat leave. He sounds like he'll get work though. Was this a redundancy (if you don't mind me asking)?

    I am sitting up far too late and will more than likely regret it in the morning which it technically is now anyway.

    nope.

    they pulled him up about 6 weeks ago when his 6m probation had ended and said they're extending it. fine.

    he's then told to "be more of a c.nt" (actual words used). this is not his management style at all but he takes it on and tries to adapt his style to be more in line with the employer's.

    there is then no follow up or additional feedback provided. any attempts he makes to schedule catch ups with the general manager/HR person are declined or cancelled. the creative director is rarely there and when he is, he's busy in meetings.

    so nothing happens. he enrolled in an AIM management course ($1300 out of our own pockets, I said this is an investment in him and the skills will stand him in good stead for any job, not just this role).

    last couple of weeks he notices he's been pulled off client work, is "in lockdown" doing internal projects. his team are instructed not to bother him.

    he's pretty suss by the point of what the outcome will be and has started networking, looking for work, meeting with people etc.

    come Friday, the boss and another director sit him down and say they're letting him go. no paperwork or termination letter. this is apparently coming on Monday. which I think is unfair. he should walk away with an idea of his final pay, entitlements etc.
    he argued and said there'd been no follow up on management's part of the formal review process. he's been given nothing in writing re the extension of probation or any notes on what was expected, how to improve etc. just an email from the GM confirming probation extension and his JD attached. the JD is so airy fairy and was written on the fly before he started. there's no quantifiable deliverables, kpis etc. when he said this to the boss, he was told it was up to him to initiate the catch ups to monitor and review progress.

    the whole thing is so unprofessional.

    he doesn't care he's been let go as the place was a terrible cultural fit with who he is and his values. as I said above, irrespective of the outcome of the probation extension, he was looking to leave.

    our issue is with how unfairly the dismissal has been dealt with. like surely if an employer initiates some kind of performance review process, they have to see it through properly?

    I had a similar thing happen to me in a previous job and everything was in writing, you got 3 written warnings etc (I quit before it got that far though as I hated the place). as far as I am aware, you can't just start this process then do nothing then fire the person but blame them for not taking the responsibility to schedule reviews? any meetings he attempted to schedule were cancelled anyway??
