Today marks the start of our online series about German employment law for expats in Germany. We would like to familiarise our foreign clients with the characteristics of Germany’s employment law system. It differs a fair amount from what you might be accustomed to from the legal systems in the United States, UK or elsewhere. We think it is very important that you know your rights when you come to work in Germany. This series will be updated on a regular basis and we look forward to hearing which topics you would like us to cover. Feel free to send in your suggestions and enquiries to email@example.com and we will try to implement them into our series.
