1) can a probationer be terminated of his service without just cause (as an example, relying on hearsay, slander and discrimination?)

2) is it true that the employer can withhold their reason for termination and deemed it as confidential, thus depriving the right of an employee to be heard?

3) can the employer terminate the service of a probationer if the probationer had proven that he had done nothing wrong and the ground for his termination is because - "we are afraid we do not like you because you complain and harass us a lot"?

4) can we treat a probationer as a contract employee? which means that he/she can be terminated at will without giving jusst cause?

5) can the employer rely on a medical report requested from the hospital without the employee's consent as  valid document to terminate him/her even if the medical report did not say anything bad regarding the employee's health condition?

6) can the employer discriminate and accuse an employee as a lunatic just because the employee did voluntarily admit himself for a psychiatric treatment?

7) can the employer rely on slanderous accusation and false report regarding an employee in order to terminate his service?

Thank You!

If the employee were terminated for whatever reasons, the employee could  bring the matter up with authorities like the Labour Department or the Industrial Relations and let those department look into the matter and decide.
