Probationary period

A probationary period of up to three months is allowed in most cases and, if the probationary period is included in the employment contract, the contract may be terminated by either party before the expiration of the probationary period upon giving a three-day notice. To be enforceable, a probationary period must be stated in an employment contract and may not exceed three months. A probationary period may not be imposed on certain categories of staff listed in the Labor Code.
