I was told by HR that my probation period was 6 months. After 5 months I handed in my resignation and quoted a 1 week notice period. The company have now come back and said my letter of offer said 3 months probation so I have to give 1 months notice. In good faith I have accepted another job with a start date in two weeks time. Do I have to lose the new job because I have to work 1 months notice?
Having reviewed the contract it does say my probation is 3 months. It also says that benefits like health care will be provided once I've passed probation. It also says that I will be informed in writing upon completion of my probation (And I have seen other people get this).
I have not received any benefits (health care) and I have not received any written confirmation of completing probation, in fact I received the opposite this week verbally being told my probation ended in January 2019. Is the verbal comment not a contractual extension of probation?
