Labor Law

Recent years’ international economic development provoked severe consequences on the German labor market and – as a political response – several changes in the field of labor law. These changes not only apply to German employers and employees, but also to EU-residents and other foreigners striving for an employment in Germany.

Many legal problems in the field of labor law can be avoided, or at least limited, through previous consultation with an attorney.

Relevant acts are the German Civil Code (BGB), the Commercial Code (HGB), and many more, some of which are part of civil law and some of which are part of administrative law. Hence, the applicable rules are widely spread.
