What do you do if a probationary employee contracts you to announce that management has just told her that if she does not resign in 72 hours it will terminate her during her probationary period?  When you ask her why management wants to fire her she says, “It’s complicated.” Where do you go to find out all the appeal options she and the union have to challenge her pending removal?  We suggest that a good place to start is

with the article entitled, “16 Ways Probationers Can Appeal Terminations.”  Another good source is to enter the word “Probationer” in the FEDSMILL search box.  It will deliver to you six articles on the rights of probationers.
