Kindly provide your valid suggestion for following case of my wife. She has been working as a probationary Teacher in a Kerala CBSE school. If we get it soon which will help our further legal process.
She has appointed into the school on 15/5/2013 (as per the Appointment order) after the interview with the management. As per the appointment order the one year probation ended on 31/5/2014 and they have extended probation from 1/6/2014 to 14/5/2015. In March 2015 itself Principal orally intimated that the confirmation may be happened in coming june(06/2015). At that time she was pregnant for three months and informed Principal orally regarding this. On 15/5/2015, Office person from school has informed her to rejoin on 25 May after the vacation. After this two day before the reopening (22/5/2015), Principal called her and informed that they are going to terminate her and she can start to find another job.
Then they issued the relieving letter only on 29/5/2015. The letter is a backdated(Date is 22/5/2015). They didn't mention any reason in the letter. Also They didn't mention regarding any performance issue orally/in writing during the probationary period. Also Her name is already there in current academic years School diary and time table. So It is clear for us that they are not really planned to terminate her. This is a sudden decision.
In the appointment letter it has given following.
The appointment is terminable either:
a) by the authorities of school with a notice of one month or immediate on payment of an mount equal to one month salary in lieu thereof
another point is
7) the specified period of probation can be extend at the discretion of authorities of the school and mere completion of proabationary period or period of extention therof would not entitle you to a automatic confirmation not it will imply confirmation.
Kindly advice the legal possibilities regarding the case. We have already given a complaint to CBSE. They have not responded.
