I think Deivis has it right.  I've also heard "probationary period".  It's not a common practice in the US.  I don't know about now, but I recall that years ago the Southern Pacific Railroad had a 90 day probation/probationary period for new employees who could be fired without any explanation or justification during that time. 

 

Be aware that "probation period" or "probation term" is also used to describe a program found in the criminal justice system that is used ("misused") as an alternative to immediate jail or prison.
