Next session: Employment Law Essentials

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 bi-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.

In a combination of general legal principles and practical examples, we will guide you through the most common topics and issues that we experience with international clients.

Next session: Different types of leave

We will cover a general overview on different types of leave under German law during the ongoing employment as well as during the notice period after unilateral termination of the employment by the employer.

In a second step, we will then focus on and discuss with you specifics like:

  • Prerequisites that allow employers to reject employees’ request for leave?
  • Special dismissal protection during leave?
  • How to calculate remuneration during leave?
  • What about part-time work during leave?
  • Recommended stipulations in employment contracts?
  • Market practice regarding any additional employers’ offers for leave?
