A probationary period is a period in which an employer can assess a new employee’s suitability for the role and by the end of the period expect the employee to have demonstrated a capability to perform the job.

The purpose of a probationary period is to allow both the employer and employee to decide whether they are suited to the position. During or toward the end of the probationary period, an employer may need to decide whether an employee is suitable for the role.
