Hover over the check-boxes in the myth-buster below for more information.

Remember: Many jobs have a probation period of between 1-6 months. If you check your contract, it will tell you the terms of this probationary period. Some terms will allow an employee to be dismissed at shorter notice.

For more information on all your rights when it comes to dismissal and being fired check out the Gov.UK page on your rights.
