trial period


trial period
Under the Employment Rights Act 1996, employers have a duty where an employee is selected for redundancy to see if there is another job for him, either within that company or an associated company that might suit that person. If an offer of alternative employment is made as part of a redundancy exercise, the employee is entitled to try the job for a trial period of four weeks or a longer agreed period. Termination during that period by the employee or the employer relating to the new job results in the employee being considered to have been dismissed when the previous contract ended.
