The Probation/Induction Evaluation Form can be used to conduct a formal evaluation of the performance of a new employee at the conclusion of an induction or probationary period.

It is essential that employees understand as soon as possible the expectations of the organisation and how success will be measured, as well as how the organisation will support them in reaching objectives. This can be established using an Induction/Probationary Performance Development Plan.

If the employee does not meet the performance requirements at the evaluation date, the organisation can choose to set additional goals and a new evaluation date, rather than terminate the employment. However, the employer should be mindful of the minimum employment period (i.e. the default exclusion period whereby all new employees under the national system are automatically subject to an initial 6-month (or 12-month in the case of a small employer) period where unfair dismissal claims cannot be pursued).

This form has been designed for completion by both the employee and the line manager/supervisor.

Sample capabilities have been included in the Evaluation section. These should be amended as appropriate.
