Hi,

So, I am a fresh graduate and just recently signed a contract of 1 year with this company. However, the contract states as below:

Probation Period: N/A

Notice of resignation or termination : N/A
during probation period

Notice of resignation or termination after confirmation: One Month

My question is:

1. Is it normal for contract jobs not having any probation period for new joiners?

2. Am I still considered confirmed or still under probation?

3. In case of me wanting to resign, which notice period should I follow?

Sorry for the long and winding posts. But I would really appreciate your input in this matter.

You have to seek clarifications from the company. It is quite vague indeed.

Allow me to clarify as follows:-

1) Parties are free to negotiate and/or determine the terms of the employment contract. Hence, it is normal for not having any probationary period if parties agreed to it.

2) Since the contract is silent, you are deemed to be confirmed contract staff as opposed to confirmed permanent staff.

3) Since you are deemed as confirmed staff, hence the notice will be one month notice. But no harm if you reconfirm this with the Company.
