German Employment Law Essentials - Part 1

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.

Our series of monthly webinars on Employment Essentials in Germany will help you avoid the most common pitfalls and give you a general understanding of critical aspects of German employment law. Based on our experience with working with international clients our German Employment Team has chosen the most relevant topics.
