My boss extended my probationary period, and told me that she is convinced I won't make it during the next probation and I am most likely going to be let go.
Hence, work started to get better as I finished some tasks, and since a couple of weeks, she changed and my workload diminished.
I faced her this morning and asked her how is my probation going, and she replied "nothing has changed, have you started looking for a new job?"
I said "no, not yet", and she replied "well, good luck" and left.
I am not sure why she didn't terminate my contract abruptly, while she involved her boss in what I would call it a dummy project a month before announcing the extension of my probation.
Why didn't she just terminate my job, simply?
