Employee 90 day probation form sample

In most cases, new employees go through a probationary period of three months before they are hired. During this time, the employee is required to learn about the job, meet the expected job performance and be familiar with how his or her role applies to the company. The management also wants to be sure that they hired the right candidate for the job. After the probation, the employee can either become regular staff or be terminated.

However, before any of that happens, there is a need to perform a 90-day evaluation to assess how the employee has performed, which will determine if the employee on probation stays or leaves. While companies can have different variations of the probation form, below is content and sample form.
