  • Probationary Period

    Used to find out if a new employee can do a job or if an existing employee is able to change roles under the same employer/organisation. The terms of a probationary period must be in writing in the employment agreement.

    Employees on a probationary period are entitled to the same minimum employee rights as permanent staff. If the probationary period does not go well, the employer must follow a fair and reasonable process before terminating.
