Hi we recently took on an IT contractor at a senior level, he did pass a coding test and was interviewed and discussed technologies we used to see if he was familiar with them, which he said he was.
Upon starting he has been here a week and struggling with the most basic task a junior should be capable of doing, his ticket has been to write literally about 5/10 lines of code and test which he still has not been able to do.
Question: Are we able to dismiss him instantly for none performance? The contract agreement is 1 weeks notice, but
He has also constantly been late, disappears when we do stand up, and refusing to push code at end of day.
