Problems with work, language and understanding German law?
Starting a job in a foreign country like Germany brings a lot of changes. Surely the biggest challenge is to manage the language, not only in your free time but especially at work. But what if problems with your employer arise? This could be a simple misunderstanding due to the so-called language barrier or: genuine labour law issues. Either way we can help you with our legal expertise and fluently English speaking lawyers, explain the situation from the law perspective and help communicate with the other party.
Different to other nations the German law system is not based on case law. “Everything” is written in the law books, it is the job of lawyers and courts to apply and interpret these laws. Only if that doesn’t bring a solution verdicts of other high courts can be used to solve a legal problem if the cases are comparable.
German labour law is generally quite employee-friendly which makes it difficult for employers to dismiss their employees. On the other hand there are several deadlines to keep in mind to preserve your rights.
