If an employee works less than 3 months are they entitled to any notice before being fired without cause? Does it matter if they're given some kind of warning or explanation?
I was reading this website but IMHO it gives contradictory information:
The BC Employment Standards Act requires employers to provide a minimum amount of notice to employees in the event of their termination without cause specifically no notice if termination occurs within the first 3 months of employment
but then it also cites the case where an employee being fired after 2 months with no notice was found to be illegal.
For the purpose of this question assume nothing was explicitly agreed to in writing i.e. a probation period was not included in the employment contract. As an aside, I heard that employees performing a federal service automatically have a 6 month probationary period, though I can't find a reference to this. Assume this is not a government job.
