      Reply to Melissa: Employers are entield to set standards and hold employees to those standards. However, if feel unfairly treated you do not have to be cajoled into accepting an offer. On the other hand, bear in mind that if there is to be a formal performance hearing the outcome could be less beneficial to you than the offer. I suggest that you make an appointment with specialist in labour law to discuss your situation and to obtain advice. You can ask your employer to give you more time to consider the offer.

      My question is: I began with my current employer in March 2013 with no training. Thrown in the deep end after 3 months was told that I was made permanent. By 8 month had first performance appraisal done. Boss scoring failed me. Then was told that due to appraisal I need to attend a performance hearing. My boss advised that he is not happy with my performance it will be reviewed till end of the year and will meet up again this year for recap. Today I informally get told to meet him and HR with no prior notice of meeting. He advised that he is not happy and doesn’t know what to do. I cant continue with him in the company and there are no alternate positions available. I need to find alternate employment. They offered 4 weeks notice with 1 months extra pay. I am not happy and need advice urgently. I need to give them my decision by close of business on the 22 Jan 2014. Please advise me on my rights and could I speak with someone to discuss matter further.
