  • Switch from parttime to fulltime status - Subject to Probation Period again?


    My question is that I was working for a private corporation as a part time status for about 8 months, well past the mandatory 90-day probationary period, and I was no longer considered under probation. The company does not offer any kind of health benefits or any other typical benefits to part time employees. I asked to work full time hours for my same exact job position within the company after finishing school, and it was granted, but they informed me that I am subject to a 90-day probation period again. Is this procedure the norm and considered legal in California? Thank you for your input

    I have no idea whether it is the norm in your industry or not. But it is legal. The law does not address probation periods.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
