I'm a recent graduate in CS currently living in Germany and looking for jobs. So I'm trying to understand more about contracts and things like that. Recently I asked this question The benefits I can ask for from companies in Germany? and in the answer the "probation period" is mentioned. Can someone please tell me what a probation period is in Germany? What are the conditions? What can and can't I do?
I understood it as a period where the employer can test me. But what does that mean? Does it mean that I can't leave the company after this period or what?!
