Abstract

This comprehensive comparative study delves into the legal frameworks surrounding probationary employment in Sri Lanka and Nigeria. Through an in-depth analysis of relevant legislation and case law, this research examines the conceptualisation, termination, confirmation, and remedies associated with probationary periods in both countries. Drawing upon landmark cases and legal interpretations, the study explores the evolving perspectives on the rights and protections afforded to probationary employees, shedding light on how these countries balance employer prerogatives with worker rights. The analysis highlights nuances and divergent trends, underscoring the evolving nature of probationary employment in the modern workforce.
