Probation

1. An initial period of employment during which an employee is evaluated. Typically, it is easier to dismiss a new employee during probation. At the conclusion of the probation, the employer decides whether or not to keep the employee on staff. A new employee may not be eligible for some benefits during probation.

2. A period during which an employee has been warned that his/her performance may result in termination if it does not improve.
