Received an LRA Form 7.11 through fax. The employee in question worked for us for 3 days as a casual worker to see if he could do what was required from him. The plan was to give him a temporary contract the following week as he started in the middle of the week and was not sure if he could actually do the job. But after a few attempts of trying to teach him how to do the job he said he could do, we asked him to leave as it was not going to work out. We paid him for the full shift even though he left in the morning.

We have now receive the LRA form 7.11 stating unfair dismissal. Please could you tell me what is our legal standing on this issue.

Thank you,
