Q. What should I do when I want to confirm successful completion of an employee’s probation period?
It is best practice to hold a half way meeting in the middle of their probation period to discuss their progress and give them the opportunity to improve on anything that might stop them from passing. If you intend to pass them, then simply waiting for the probation period to end and sending them a congratulation letter will suffice. We would also recommend mentioning details of any opt in or out requirements to pensions or benefits.
