Probation period extended

Postby Jasi87 » Wed, 25 Oct 2017 2:20 pm

Hi all,

I have started a new job on June 1st, 2017 with a three months probation period ending on the 1st of September. In my contract it only states that I have this three months period.

On the 19th of September (three weeks after it ended), my boss extended my probation period to the 16th of October. This happened via e-mail and I have acknowledged it. This date is over now as well and nothing has happened yet, I am still on probation with no end date.

Can anyone help me here?
1. How often can they extend my probation?
2. If I am still on probation they only need to pay me 2 weeks, afterwards three months.

I was thinking about contacting MoM abut I am worried to give them all my details as they may contact my employer.

Thanks for your help, I am getting really nervous here...

Sounds like you are going to be served notice sometime in November to me. I hope I'm wrong, but the only way I see an employer extending your probation is they have to notify you at least 1 week before the expiry of your probation 'in writing'. Something smells fishy in Denmark. In theory they can only extend your probation by 3 months (if on initial 3 months probation) once. I'd be wary of them. But that's only my opinion.

Thanks for your help.

So you dont think that they extend my probation after the three months as they did?
