All Georgia Highlands College employees, (except those under Faculty Contract) are required to serve the first six months of employment with Georgia Highlands College on a provisional basis to provide the employer an opportunity to evaluate the employee’s performance.  If the work of the employee is satisfactory, the employment is continued.  Should the work be unsatisfactory, the employee will be notified in writing prior to the completion of the six months provisional period and the employee may be terminated at that time without right of appeal.

As Georgia is an Employment at Will and Right to Work State, it is presumed that Faculty probationary periods run the course of their initial employment contract with the College.
