Employee Probationary Period Policy

Our probationary period policy will define the employment probationary period and explain its meaning for the employee. It is designed to allow an introductory period for everyone involved to decide if the hiring of the particular employee was a correct decision and whether the employee should continue working for the company.


This policy applies to all prospective and existing employees of our company.
Policy elements

Those who can be placed in an employee probationary period include the following:

New employees who have just passed through a hiring process for a position.

Current employees who are promoted to a position of higher responsibility.

Current employees who have to be disciplined for various reasons.

The probationary period may be extended for reasons that justify this action. The employee will receive formal notification in writing with the reason for the extension and clearly defined objectives.
