Probation Period

My appointment letter states that I shall be on probation for 6 months, or till such a period that I get my confirmation in writting. I have worked for over 26 months in this Company and am still on probation. Is there a time limit for the period of probation & what if I want to leave the Company or am sacked? Till date no employee has received any confirmation letter,some have even served for more than 1-2 years.

As per industrial dispute act if any employee work in organisation for more than 240 days then he will be entitled for all the benefits of permanent employee. As you have crossed the said limit and organisation had not given you any letter whether confirmation or termination of your service then you are impliedly confirmed(Confirmed by the act of employer) So legally you are confirmed (permanent employee) not on probation. If you want to leave the organisation then you have to follow process as per exit clause of your appointment letter. All the rules and regulations which apply to permanent employee you are also govern by them. it seems that in your organisation HR departement is not serious in issuing confirmation letter they have put confirmation clause in appoitnement for sake of puting it. It will be better if they follow right policy.
