hi sunil
i dont think there is any labour law for the probation period. Normally it will the policy for the company to keep employee on probation for a period of time , say 6 months or 1 year. but do not keep an employee on probation or as a trainee for more than 240 working days. please refer to an act called conferment of permanent status act, wherein it says that an employee should be made permanent or deemed as a permanent employee once he or she had worked for 240 days in a year. as far as the probationary and trainee period you may include as a condition in your company HR policy like one year, 6 months etc.,
any further doubt you can ask me

Hi All,

My Name is Jaivir Selwal. I was working with a 5 Star Hotel at Gurgaon. I have resigned from hotel on 13 Jan 2014. I have joined in 01.07.2013 and i was in probation period as it is specifically written in my appointment letter that i will be in probation period untill I got conformation in writing whether after 6 months.

I had joined there at Rs.15100/-PM and was assured to revised my salary after 3 month but I didn't get anything in written about it. But They didn't revise my salary so I put resignation letter on the table of my HOD after 6 month.(but could not inform to HR).

As I was in probation period so I was not liable to serve any notice period.( In appointment letter only written that I have to give 1 month notice period only if I got Conformation. There is no point about probation period).

Now I was shortlisted in a MNC and they verified in hotel. The HR of the hotel said that I was a Absconder and did not fulfill exit formalities even if HR did not contacted me earlier. So I lost a wonderful opportunity.

Please suggest me some way( mutual or Legal) as it will be repeat again in next verification.

Hi, my name is kuldeep Singh and I am working in a central government PSU. I am in probation period for one year. A case on me which is cleared before joining. But court give me one probation which is also completed. Now my department asked me for submit the proof of clearance of probation which is given by court. I also submitted that certificate issued by SP, police. But my department asked me that the proof of clearance of court probation should be issued from court only. In continuation to this I approached to Public procecuter & advocate but they stated that court will not give such kind of certificate however certificate issued by police is enough for this purpose.
Kindly give me the suggestion that who will give the proof of clearance of the probation which is given by the court in a case either court or police.

Hi... I am working in an organization since past 3 months. The probation period of the company is 6 months. I am not liking the environment of the organization and want to leave on immediate basis. If I resign without serving my complete notice period then what all actions can the company take legally. No direct reference has been made to this in my appointment letter.

I am working in a PSU, we have to serve one year of the training period and six months of probation period before finalizing. As our training did not complete on time, I was on training for one year and 4 months. But the letter issued to me from the back date and it confirms that I did my training in exactly one year. But now the problem arises as my probation started after one year and 4 months. So in actual, I was on training + probation period for 1 year and 10 months which seems wrong to me as I should have completed in 1 year and 6 months. In between, I did not receive any letter confirming my training extension. Now, I wanted to apply for a company after 1 year and 8 months but I am not allowed to do so as I am on probation as per order. Please guide me what should I do now.

Hello, My wife has been working as an Assistant Professor for an Engineering College since 2012. The college is affiliated to the University of Mumbai, and the University Grants Commission's approval is also there. Her appointment was on the ad-hoc basis for the period from 2012 to 2015. In 2015, she received a 24-month order of probation and successfully completed in 2017. During her probation she did not receive any type of memo/complaint. But in 2018 suddenly the college again issued an Ad-hoc order of 11 months. Therefore, I want to know that, can collage issues the ad-hoc order after successful completion of Probation. I also want to know Laws for probation period.
