A prospective mill worker was fired during his probationary period after a number of incidents caused the employer to believe the worker was unsuitable.

B.C. started as a probationary employee at Catalyst Paper on Aug. 20, 2012. B.C. was let go on Sept. 18, 2012, after completing 22 working days of his 30-day probationary period.

The employer said that four incidents during that period caused the employer to conclude that B.C. would not be a suitable employee.
