"Probationary period" is not defined in the Employment Act, but you may be able to get some information in the Home Page of this website under item "Probation".

About the shortest period of probation, I don't seem to have come across one that was shorter than 3 months.

Thanks for your info.

I called up Labor Department. They said that there is nothing as such (probation) stated in Employment Act 1955.

Itís up to the employer.
