A probationary period is different from a trial period.

A probationary period may be used to trial an employee in a new position within the same company. This gives the employee a chance to prove they have the skills or can learn the skills for the new position. The probation period should be for an agreed length of time.

A probationary employee still has to be paid and receives all the benefits that a permanent employee would get, and the probation period must be set out in the employment agreement if you have an existing employment agreement it should be updated to include the probationary period.

The probation period can sometimes be longer than 90 days, but only if that is reasonable and agreed to. During the probation period, you should be made aware of what is expected to perform the job satisfactorily and you should be monitored and receive feedback.

If there are any problems during the probation period your employer must still follow the correct disciplinary process that is laid out in your employment agreement.

In the case, you have been on a probationary period and have been dismissed at the end of it give us a call so we can check that everything has been done fairly and correctly. If the correct procedure has not been followed we can raise a personal grievance for you.

 

What our clients are saying

Thank you Kam

I want to acknowledge Kam’s excellent help throughout the whole process from start to finish. Upon recommendation I called Kam and am so glad I did. She listened and immediately took over and I felt a heavy weight lifted off my shoulders and felt at ease. Keeping my reputation in tact meant a lot and I have Kam to thank for it. Kam’s expert guidance, knowledge, understanding, caring and determination was exceptional. She successfully managed to turn my case right around with a successful outcome more than I expected. Thank you Kam for accepting my case, for your patience and that it matters. I highly recommend Kam and Work Law for any employment issues.
