Leave while on probation
An absence on leave during a probationary period does not alter the duration of that probationary period. If at the end of the initial probationary period the delegate does not have sufficient information to determine the outcome because of the absence on leave the probationary period may be extended once only for a further period. At the end of that further period the delegate must either confirm or annul the person’s employment. A further extension of the probationary period is not possible.
