In contrast to the introductory period, probation is for inadequate performance or improper behavior occurring at any time after the introductory period. You may be placed on probation for a designated period of time to correct recognized performance deficiencies. This will be done at your manager's discretion.

The employee and manager should agree upon a specified plan of improvement. This plan should include the necessary areas of development and specify time frames for improvement. In addition, check points should be established to insure that performance improvements are occurring. If there is no identifiable progress then management reserves the right to end the probationary period and terminate employment.

It is our hope and desire that this probationary period will correct any and all performance or behavior issues and that the employee will maintain the corrections attained.
