Question posted in the Consumer Protection Law category relating to Gauteng


Im TJ and was employed at this company *** in March as a contract and on the 26th of September I was promised by the completion CEO that they will take us permanent (We are a group of 6) Nothing was said after until we all received automated emails to remind us that our contract is about to end.

I was approached by my manager who told me that she would like to take me as a permanent but wants me to serve a probation period ( Giving me a chance to prove myself on some areas of my work).

My question, what do I do?  Should I agree to the probation? I find it unfair to serve another period.. I find it unfair to have been promised by the CEO himself then threatened to not taken in and I'm told now.
