Can probation period be different for different employees or company should keep the standard probation for all the hires?
From India, Delhi
Dear Swati, Yes, you can apply different notice period for different employees of your company. There is no compulsion to keep standard probation period.

Hi Swati
Probation Period can be different for different employee's level. You can categorized either based on their experience or flash points for example-
Intern - 6 month or 1 years
Entry Level - 6 months
Mid Level - 3 Months
Higher Level - 1 Month
Except the President, CEO, CFO, COO & MD of the company. It is totally based on your company what duration you want to chose. You have to identity with your team how much time new employee needed to proof himself and learn the process.

Hi Srikant,
Thank you for your reply, our team size is 25 employees so I believe Industrial Employment Standing Orders Act is not applicable to our company. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thank you.

Even though the act is not applicable to you, you cant have unduly long probation period for employees.

Does your company have only one office or more? If so the manpower of all units will be summed up for applicability of the act.

Dear Swati,
Since Empl Standing orders Act does not apply to your company ,you are at liberty to fix it differently for different levels of employees. But I don't see any sound logic in fixing different probation period for each employee. You may consider fixing only two periods. For senior level one year and for the rest six months extendible for further period of three months . Purpose of probation period being to assess suitability of each other and too many different periods, in my view, would be unfair and unjust.

Dear Nagakar,
It is complicated and unstructured to keep probation period different even in a small team. I agree with your point of keeping it 6 months standard and 1 year for senior level. I and the business head of my organization were discussing this and he was totally in the favor of keeping a longer period of probation for the senior level employees.
Thank you for your feedback on my query.
