But I have met a lot of successful people over the past three years who specialised in HR while on the M&S graduate scheme. No idea about details or how you get on it, but you should look into it. Anyone got some better advice?

I'm no employment lawyer but I wouldn't apply for another position before probation was up - and that seems to be at least six months in most places.
What does everyone else think?

Thanks for your comment. That's a great question. I will see what I can find. Maybe we need HRzone US - AccountingWeb, our sister site, has a US version already.

Sorry you didn't receive an answer here, but thank you for updating us with what you found. It's quite a risk - any examples of processes HR can put in place to stop this happening in the first place would be good to see.
Wishing you all the best

Thank you for posting this query - we are also running a poll on this here.
It looks like there isn't much of a legal case for having to pay employees stuck because of the volcano but there might be a moral argument for allowing a bit of leeway - see the legal comments in this article.
What do you think?
