Over several months, our daughter attended four interviews with a large company Homeserve who eventually offered her a job as a Communications Manager. She was subject to a six month probationary period. In the early weeks that followed she worked extremely hard and received praise from her Managers and colleagues for what she had achieved. Just prior to the three month period of employment she was called  in front of her Manager and dismissed - the explanation for doing so was "it's not working out"..... .Absolutely no reasons other than that and nothing in writing.They said they would pay her to the end of the year. She was also informed that she would be required to "train up" an office junior before the end of this year in order that they could fulfil the role after her employment was terminated!. It is our belief that the Homeserve used our daughters expertise to find solutions to the many problems they had and having achieved that in so short a time, they then saw an opportunity to save a high salary by dismissing her and pay far less to an office junior. Indeed we further believe that this abuse of employment law is used by many employers as a tool, a deliberate ploy to find solutions to problems on the cheap. After all Consultants cost much more. These companies that are involved in this sharp practice care not one jot for the chaos and hurt they leave behind. Our daughter is suicidal as a result of the way she has been treated and it doesn't stop there, it affects all in the extended family. Her treatment by Homeserve says a lot for their recruiting and retention of staff when after four interviews and three months they suddenly decide who they have employed is not what they want. This abuse of employment probationary periods needs to stop......
