1.5 months probation period

The HR handed us the contract today, and I was very happy to learn that the probation period is only 1.5 months, instead of 3 months as I was told by others.

Apparently, a law was passed in Jun, which indicates that a person who did his or her internship in a company and subsequently become a permanent employee in the same company should have a trial period of only 1.5 months.

I think it makes a lot of sense.

For more information, please refer to the link that Natalie posted on the comment:


  1. Hello-

    Congratulations on the contract and only 1.5 months probation. Thanks for stopping by my blog and giving details about reimbursement thru ANPE.


  2. Kudos for having the patience to work it all out the way you wanted it! Congratulations on all of your enormous accomplishments in both the US and France.

    Thank you for checking up on Stephanie. It was very, very kind and thoughtful of you. I am hoping that I will be able to make good use of your information myself within the next 4-6 months.

    You are welcome. Well, it seems like you are well prepared before even setting foot in France.


    Thanks, in many part you have inspired me. We were the first batch to have only 1,5 months probation. I'm glad you sent the link, I would had been shocked to see that on the contract if you didn't tell me.

    anyway, even if it was 3 months, I am sure that you could have gone through it uneventfully.
