Can someone guide me ? How many days should an employee complete for him to get a confirmation letter ? Is there any other condition wherein he will not be eligible for confirmation even after completion of probation period ?
Kindly guide.

Hello Jenicia
Are you talking of employment in establishments in India? If so, confirmation follows successful completion of probation by a new joinee. The duration of probation is governed either by the standing orders, wherever applicable or the service rules framed under the HR policy of the company or the terms of employment which are stipulated in the letter of appointment.Normally the period of probation in Indian establishments varies from 3 months to 6 months and in some cases, may extend to one year depending up on the category of employee namely whether he is workman or recruited for a managerial position..So you need to have policy on probation and confirmation.

Dear Seniors,
I have another question related to the probationary period. Can we allow employees to avail Casual leave / Earned Leave and Optional Leave during the probationary period. Kindly give your suggestion.

Hi Jenicia.
The normal policy/practice followed by many Cos is to provide a Clause on Confirmation in the Apptt.Order itself which is given to him when he joins for duty so that he is told everything in writing. Co. should keep a copy of the Appt.Order with his Ack. Accepting all the T&C of the A.O.
A Std. clause of this is re-produced below for infn. , ref.& guidance.: Hope; it is useful.
"Initially, your Appointment will be for aPprobation period of six months from the date of your joining. If your Performance and Progress during the Probation period is not found to be satisfactory, the Probation period may be extended or your service will be terminated at the discretion of the Management. On satisfactory completion of the probation period, you will be Confirmed. You will however, continue to be on probation till your services are confirmed in WRITING. for all HR Rules, Policies etc., -HR Consultant-13.4.16

Kindly refer to your appointment letter..As probation period varies from company to company .Yes in some cases company can extend the probation period but employee should be communicated earlier.And if you have completed the probation period mentioned as per appointment letter and have not received the extension communication then you can talk to company HR for the same.
Some companies take disadvantage of probation clause as they mention that if any emloyee is not performing well then he/she can be terminated without notice in probation period.So better to have an appointment letter to avoid such scenario in future.
All the Best
