  7. Hi. I have a question regarding ban. I worked for 6 months for a company and suddenly they closed the brand and that brand was taken by another company. Then most of the employees had to find another job. But some of the employees were interviewed by the second company and hired. I was hired as well. But the problem is they didn't increase the wage, even they didn't ask about it either. Now I've been working here for 2 months.
    However I am looking for another job. If I find one can I terminate my contact within probation period? Will there be any ban or not? (Because I couldn't get proper answer regarding labor ban)
    In which case ia there a ban: during probation or after probation?

    Thank you for answer beforehand!
