Work trial period

What is the trial period in the workplace?

In the workplace, the trial period is a time during which employer and worker mutually test the employment relationship that unites them.

In this way, the company checks whether or not the worker fits the position and the worker knows if what it offers is what he is looking for.

It must be agreed in writing in the employment contract and has certain duration limits, which are established in the collective agreement that applies or in the law.

While this period lasts, the parties may agree to terminate the contract without prior notice or compensation.

Its legal nature is that of a suspensive condition of the employment contract, that is, while the trial period lasts, the contract does not produce all its legal effects, but remains suspended until the employment relationship is confirmed or resolved.
