    So I recently have been "let go" from asda as it is the end of my first 12 weeks and "I was not a good fit for the company". However I have found that I have been *cough* "let go" 3/4 days after the end of my probation period, does this change anything? Thanks to all who can help

    Essentially, the term 'probationary period' means very little.

    If your employer is unhappy with your performance, they can decide to terminate their contact (giving one weeks notice minimum - or as per their contract). There may be other procedures to follow such as the in-house disciplinary process too. Although even if this wasn't followed (the disciplinary period/weeks notice), as you haven't worked there for 2 years or more, the best legal case you'd have would be breach of contract.

    In short, what they've done is essentially fine, and knit picking won't get you your job back. It's unfortunate, but move on to bigger and better things!
