Employment Law Essentials

17 September 2020

6:00 - 6: 45 pm CET

Is it true that in Germany an employee cannot be terminated under any circumstance? Is the administrative burden for employers in Germany really so extensive?Are employees forbidden to work on Sundays? Do all employees in Germany have a company car? Are works councils always a headache?

These and many others are common questions and prevailing myths that are regularly raised by our international clients, who are often apprehensive of German employment law.

Even though Germany’s employment laws provide for a high level of employee protection, it is not as inaccessible as you might fear.

The German Employment Team invites you to a series of monthly webinars on Employment Essentials in Germany to help you avoid the most common pitfalls, and to give you a general understanding of critical aspects of German employment law. Based on our experience with working with international clients we have chosen the most relevant topics. Various team members from our German offices will present these topics through these monthly webinars, share their practical experiences with international clients and answer questions.
