You can use this letter to confirm with an employee that his or her employment will not continue beyond the probationary period (if applicable). You are not required by law to provide a letter like this or to have employees on probation. However, you are required to provide written notice of termination if you are terminating an employee’s employment during the probationary period.

Information you will need to fill in:

  • the end date of the probationary period
  • that the probation period ended unsuccessfully
  • if the person is going to continue to be employed by the business, and
  • if the employment will not continue, the period of notice of termination (or payment in lieu of that notice).
