  1. Hi GUys,
    i've been offered a new job, but am due to be mobilised in november.
    If i take the job, given notice at my current place of employment of 4 weeks, i will have been in the new place for effectively 2 weeks before i'm mobililsed, are they liable to hold my job for me under the RFA 1996?
    thanks in advance.

  2. Nope, as you will of only worked there for approx 2 WEEKS! as you will only completed 2 weeks of your PROBATIONARY period and not even settled in to your new job.

    Nope, they are not. I'm astonished that they offered you a job in the circumstances - you did tell them about the mobilisation, I take it?
  4. gutted.....
    i'll probably lose my current job too, as part of a redundancy package (well they cant sack me for being in the TA, but they can find other ways of getting rid...)
    oh well, deal with it when it happens i suppose.....

  5. i didnt know at the time of interview, i'll have a chat with them today.
