Employment Agreement Trial Period

Even when a worker is on probation, he can still file a personal complaint for reasons other than his dismissal, for example: fixed-term contracts can sometimes be used for parole purposes. For a more complete understanding of the issue, it is therefore appropriate to examine the trial period regime at the same time as the fixed-term contract regime. Modification or termination of employee agreements during COVID-19 – Employment NZ Simmons v Collins Stainless Steel Fabricators Ltd is an example of the second reservation and was decided after Smith v Stokes Valley. In this regard, the court decided that the worker had been prevented from filing a personal complaint of unfair dismissal. This happened although they signed their employment contract with the probation period (of which they had obtained a copy before the start of work) after the start of their work. The Tribunal decided that the difference was that the worker had been informed, prior to the start of work, that his employment was subject to a 90-day probation period and that he had given his consent. As of May 6, 2019, only an employer with 19 or fewer employees (at the beginning of the day of the employment agreement) will be able to employ a new worker for the first 90 calendar days of employment during a trial period. For your first 30 days, the terms of your individual employment contract must be in line with the overall employment contract – for example, if the collective agreement states that you cannot have a trial period, an individual agreement cannot say anything else. The duration of a trial period depends on the duration of the employment contract. However, it must never exceed a period of 2 months. The same period applies to both employers and workers.

However, in order for an employer to rely on a probation period, recent case law proposes that: either: your employer can use a probation period to determine whether a worker can perform new work. Trial periods must be included in your employment contract. If you want to employ someone in the Netherlands, you can agree to include a trial period in their employment contract. . . .
