Labour law for employees.
Dr. Granzin Rechtsanwälte.

Your employment not only fills the majority of your day, but secures your economic livelihood and that of your family. In the event of changes, tensions and, in particular, termination of employment relationships, it is important and sensible to seek advice in good time in order to assert your rights successfully - we will be happy to advise you.

Do not hesitate to call us and let us advise you. Because in labour law there are particularly short deadlines that have to be met in order not to suffer any disadvantages.

Your rights as an employee in labour law!

Specialist law firm for labour law - Dr. Granzin Rechtsanwälte

The new employment contract actually only has disadvantages and obligations, but not rights for you - but what should you do, you want to secure the job and have to accept all the consequences after signing the contract...or not? No, employment contracts are examined as so-called general terms and conditions and must not be unilaterally disadvantageous. Let us advise you if you feel disadvantaged or unreasonably restricted.

Getting a lawyer involved - that's trouble at work! Or? We do not see it as our task to disrupt your employment relationship, but to bring you to your right. We master the entire keyboard, from the friendly to the energetic tones. We want you to feel well and fairly treated in your employment relationship - or even during its termination.

But there are rights of the employer which cannot be shaken! Yes, the right to issue instructions (also called the right to direct) is incumbent on the employer, correctly. But does this mean that the employer can determine that a certificate of incapacity for work must be presented by the employee on the first day of illness? How does such an instruction behave in relation to the Continued Remuneration Act, which requires a submission from the third day of an illness? In labour law there is - unlike e.g. the BGB in civil law - no "labour law". Rather, labour law is composed of many labour laws...pro rata actually from the Civil Code, the Federal Leave Act, the Protection against Dismissal Act, the Working Hours Act, the Minimum Wage Act, the Continued Remuneration Act, the General Equal Treatment Act, the Maternity Protection Act, the Part-Time and Fixed-Term Employment Act and many other laws and ordinances. In addition, there are employment contracts, collective agreements and, to a large extent, judicial practice as a formative element of labour law. This diversity of standardization results in points of friction, uncertainties and often mistakes - avoid them and seek advice.

We are there for you.

Why we represent both employees and employers - and why it's better for you!

Employees in the morning, employers in the afternoon...

Both sides? But don't lawyers have to take a political stand on labour law and decide whether they represent the employees or the employers? No, we don't. Labour law is a complex area of law that regulates the interaction between employees, employers, co-determination bodies and social security authorities. We firmly believe that our strength lies precisely in our ability to appear on all sides and therefore to know all sides. The key to resolving a labour dispute is to find a solution that all parties can go along with. But it is precisely for this purpose that everyone's point of view and interests must be known. We have the experience on both sides and use it specifically for our clients.
