We are thinking about extending our probation for every new employee from three months to six months and then again to nine months if we deem that the employee's performance is still unsatisfactory.
We understand that this practice is not common and most organisations will probably extend probation to a maximum of six months and that is usually for managers from what I have read from the archives.
Our view is that it has been an extraordinary year that requires unprecedented measures and we would love to hear your opinions about this.
We are an investment firm.
Thank you and seasons greetings.
Can probation be extended from 3 to 6 months and then again to 9 months?
