Employee rights during probation

Employers often require new hires to complete a probationary period before their permanent position is confirmed.

Probation periods benefit both you and the new member of your team. It allows each of you to see if you’re a good fit and to see whether the employee is likely to work out in the long-term. They usually for a fixed period – usually between three or six months – and your new staff member will be exempt from some statutory rights.

However, there are plenty of employment rights that apply from day 1 of employment with you. So it’s important for you as an employer to make sure you’re getting all the details right and you’re still complying with the law.
