That link was something that suggested a fraud by employer by Backdating a confirmation. If I recall correctly.sundaymorningstaple wrote: Squirrel, that's all fine, well and good, if an employer wants to do that and the employees accept it. However, it still doesn't mean, if taken to task, that it would/could be upheld in the court if it is not spelled out in the contract, the provision for early ending of probation. I grant you, the premise you are driving at is normal, but it's because it can be also used against an employee that it would, I believe, be thrown out in a courtroom because the provision for early completion is not written in the contract. Once it came out that the employee had an offer, which the employer may well have found out in a small country like Singapore, it could have prompted him to confirm early so the employee could not leave with only 2 weeks notice and that probably would cause the new employer to withdraw his offer if he has to wait 3 months. Sorry, but I think you might be on the short end of the stick this time.
Additionally, you don't seem to be able to make up your mind (or keep your 'stories' straight as the case may be.....)

Something about hoists & petards comes to mind.....
Going by your logic the employers who give early confirmation are in serious breach of the law ?
