Would it be possible to provide a consultant letter for an employee who was hired as a permanent staff member but was let go during their probation period due to inadequate performance? They were with us for two months.

  1. Dear Sir, You requested an employee to leave the job within two months during their probationary period. To maintain records that the employee was hired as a consultant for two months, an invoice for professional services rendered must be issued and payment settled against it. If the employee falls under the Income Tax bracket, then TDS must be deducted from the payment and Form 16A issued. This advice is given to you to avoid having the employee’s name on your muster roll for various reasons. Regards

  2. Dear [Name], Did you issue any letter to the individual prior to them joining your employment? If not, where did the terms of probation come from? Why do you want to consider the individual under ‘Consultancy’? How can this be done without any document or signature? Did you pay the person during their engagement or create any ID under EPF and ESI? If all of these are absent, contact the individual, pay for their services and take a note of a self-declaration that their turnover is less than 20 lakh.
