This is an issue we have been facing in our organization for quite sometime now. The company hires employees on a three month probationary period. The employee is given offer letter for three months and once they complete this period, they are given appointment letter. From this time, they could enjoy the benefits other than salary.
My question is Can there be two different concept of offer letter and appointment letter? As far as my knowledge goes, an employee is confirmed after probation period depending on how well he/she performs during that time and they are confirmed in writing. But, is it fair to not confirm the employee if he doesn't perform to management's expectations and not giving them the benefits of a permanent employee?
In case if the employee is not to be confirmed, can we give in writing that their probation has been extended as it is mentioned in the offer letter that management has right to extend the probation or terminate the employee if the performance is bad.
Pls give ur comments and suggestions as this is a burning issue in my company and is becoming a demotivating factor for those who completed their probation period and not yet got confirmed and we don't have a right to decide as it is in management's hand.
Thanks and Regards,
