An apprenticeship is a kind of employment contract in which a person learns the necessary skills for a job or obtains a relevant qualification. “Modern apprenticeships” have increased in popularity in recent years, and typically include three parties: the worker, the employer, and a training provider that offers training toward a recognised certification.
Can you be fired from an apprenticeship?
Those under an apprenticeship contract may be dismissed only for the most serious offences. The issue is whether the apprentice’s behaviour is such. This could be caused by repeated intentional violations of explicit instructions and/or a habit of not carrying out specific duties.
Apprentices employed under an apprenticeship agreement may be dismissed in the same way as any other employee may be fired, based on behaviour or performance.
