A probationary period can be agreed upon under three conditions:
The statutory deadlines are:
If the three conditions are not met, the probationary period clause is null and void and the “normal” dismissal rules apply. The probationary period clause is also null and void if the employee has previously worked for you as an agency worker or payroller or on the basis of a temporary contract.
During the probationary period, both the employer and employee can terminate the employment agreement with immediate effect. You do not need a reasonable ground for the termination and a preventive test at the UWV or the subdistrict court is not necessary. Nor do you have to take into account the notice period.
