A while ago I was fired for just cause. They gave me no warning and did it to several other employees. I tried to dispute it with the labor board. I was told the company I had worked for provides a federal service I wasn't eligible to dispute because I had worked there for less than a year. I forget if they used the word "probationary period" but this seems to describe the situation. I managed to get the explanation the just cause was I "wasn't meeting expectations". To my understanding normally just cause requires a lot more than this but the laws are different for federally regulated companies.
When applying for other jobs they ask if I've been fired (for just cause) before. If I was fired before a probationary period ended, does this count? Does my description meet the criteria for probationary period?
The thing is many job applications have a form where I can only answer yes or no without details.
