Trial periods are used by employers to try new employees out to see if you will make a good employee. If the employer decides not to give you a permanent position in the company beyond the trial period, they can fire you at any point, during a valid trial period, without any misconduct on your part. All employers in New Zealand, no matter their size, are now able to use 90-day trial periods. Previously, they only applied to employers with fewer than 20 employees. The trial periods are now available to all employers.
This section give you information about trial periods, you should always make sure you agree with the trial period before signing your agreement.
