The employer's duties begin even before an employment relationship is established. You want to fill a vacancy and are looking for a "young, motivated colleague" - and even before you have decided who will be hired, you have the first problem: discrimination. In Germany, we have a strong employee protection law that requires employers to have a lot of knowledge, duties and equal rights. All this is often at odds with the understandable pursuit of profitability, growth and ideal candidates. We see it as our task to guide you through the legal world of labour law and to work out legally sound decisions and actions with you.
In the end, the employer always pays? We understand that this impression arises in the cross section of the jurisdiction landscape with employers, nevertheless the multiplicity of employer payments is owed to the lack of knowledge and preparation of labour law steps. Termination without notice, which is not pronounced within two weeks of knowledge of the reason for termination; the signature of a manager on a letter of termination without power of attorney in the event of a lack of termination authority; the payment of continued remuneration in the event of illness without the employee's actual entitlement - all classics of avoidable mistakes.
We advise you in the background or in direct contact, just as the situation requires. Right from the start, comprehensively and with foresight for the effects of all decisions and steps.
