Probationary Employment Contract Template 2019 with Data Privacy Clause for Simple Office Positions

Probationary employment shall not exceed six (6) months from the date the employee started working, unless it is covered by an apprenticeship agreement stipulating a longer period. The services of an employee who has been engaged on a probationary basis may be terminated for a just cause or when he fails to qualify as a regular employee in accordance with reasonable standards made known by the employer to the employee at the time of his engagement. An employee who is allowed to work after a probationary period shall be considered a regular employee. (See HR Forms, Notices & Contracts Vol. 1 citing Art. 296 of the re-numbered Human Resource Forms Contract and Notices by Atty Elvin B VillanuevaLabor Code, as amended)

A probationary employee or probationer is one who is on trial for an employer, during which the latter determines whether or not he is qualified for permanent employment. The probationary employment is intended to afford the employer an opportunity to observe the fitness of a probationary employee while at work, and to ascertain whether he will become an efficient and productive employee. While the employer observes the fitness, propriety and efficiency of a probationer to ascertain whether he is qualified for permanent employment, the probationer, on the other hand, seeks to prove to the employer that he has the qualifications to meet the reasonable standards for permanent employment. (HR Forms, Notices & Contracts Vol. 1 citing Magis vs. Manalo, G.R. No. 178835 February 13, 2009.)

Below is a sample contract for probationary employment for simple office positions or those which do not require confidentiality clause, non-compete, etc.
