The probationary period means trial period ” for new workers. It is a period during which new employees are examined before being authorized to work on a permanent basis. The probationary term is used to evaluate an applicant’s abilities and fitness for employment. It not only guarantees that candidates are qualified, but it also protects businesses from hiring persons who are unqualified or inappropriate for the job. In most circumstances, probationary employees will be paid less than permanent employees until they are completely accepted into their jobs as part of the company’s ongoing workforce.
