Article 37 of the labour law states: "A worker may be engaged on
probation for a period not exceeding six months, during which his
service may be terminated by the employer without notice or severance
pay; provided that a worker shall not be engaged on probation more
than once in the service of any one employer. Where a worker
successfully completes his period of probation and remains in his job,
the said period shall be reckoned towards his period of service."
