All newly appointed staff in the company should be subject to a probationary period.

The purpose of the probationary period is to give both the employee and the employer time to find out if they suit each other. If used correctly, the probationary period can be one of the most important tools available for employers in order to secure that the right employees are employed in the right positions in the undertaking.

Employees are less protected against dismissals during the probationary period. This is, however, only the case if the employment contract contains a probationary period clause and the employers use the probationary period effectively and in accordance with legal requirements.
