Labor law

In the event of disagreements and questions in the employment relationship

What exactly is covered by labor law?

Ideally, the employee and employer enter into a long-term, mutually agreed employment contract. If this ideal case does not occur, legal advice and expertise is often required.

If there are disagreements or issues in the employee-employer relationship, this is individual employment law. The following topics in particular are used here:

Labor law topics

  • General equal treatment to prevent or eliminate discrimination in working life
  • Temporary employment on the rights and obligations of temporary workers
  • Working hours for the safety and protection of employees
  • Vocational training on regulations for vocational training, further training and retraining
  • Federal leave for the entitlement to paid leave
  • Continued Remuneration Act on the continued payment of wages and salaries on public holidays and sick days
  • Dismissal protection for employee protection and the legal validity of dismissals, warnings, dismissals without notice and dismissals during the probationary period
  • Maternity protection to protect expectant mothers
  • Part-time work and fixed-term contracts on regulations and requirements for part-time work and the avoidance of discrimination

Popular legal topics in employment law

Temporary employment

In the case of temporary employment, the employer assigns his employee to another employer for a temporary period. Although companies benefit enormously from the flexibility of temporary work, wages are not adjusted for the same work. If the remuneration for your work is not fair, or in the event of other breaches of the contractual relationship, I will represent you professionally and with commitment.

Protection against dismissal

Protection against dismissal normally serves as a good armor against dismissal. A period of three weeks applies from the time the notice of termination is served, during which a so-called action for protection against dismissal must be filed with the labor court. If you have received a notice of termination (in writing), please contact us immediately so that we can support you at the labor court and you can make efficient use of your protection against dismissal.

Termination during the probationary period

In the event of termination during the probationary period, the employment relationship can be terminated by the employee and employer with a notice period of two weeks. If you as an employee are dissatisfied with your job due to interpersonal relationships, high work demands, the job description has not met your expectations, or if you have received a job offer for another position, please contact me.

Vacation entitlement

Vacation suspensions are regularly imposed improperly or the remaining vacation is not carried over into the new year, even though there were urgent operational reasons. Can’t find a way to take action against your vacation block or have another question about your vacation entitlement? We provide you with legal assistance so that you too can go on vacation without any problems.

Severance pay in the event of dismissal

If you lose your job, you may be able to receive financial compensation in the form of severance pay. However, a claim for such a one-off cash payment from the employer to the employee is largely excluded. If you would like to be financially compensated, we will be happy to help you increase your chances of receiving a severance payment and reach a quick agreement with your employer.

Termination without notice

In the case of termination without notice, the employment relationship can be terminated without notice if a warning or ordinary termination has already been exhausted. Although a notice period does not have to be observed, it often has serious financial consequences for both parties. Are you being accused of misconduct that you did not commit?

Other areas of labor law

If more players are involved than just the employer and employees, such as works councils, staff councils and trade unions, the problems are those of collective employment law. This includes:

  • Works constitution on the existence of a works council and its rights and obligations
  • Co-determination depending on the type of company and existing bodies
  • Collective agreements on the rights and obligations of the parties to collective agreements

    • Excellent advice in a difficult liquidity situation.
      Private tax office claim: installment payment agreed and resolved. Agreement also reached with the house bank.
      No insolvency! no coercive measures! not even a negative entry with Schufa and credit agencies. I would like to thank Mr. Kaufmann for his very professional, successful and outstanding human help. I can only recommend it expressly and unreservedly.

    • I asked my tax law question and received a competent, comprehensible and very detailed answer on the same day, which answered my questions more than satisfactorily. I found the unobtrusive manner of communication particularly pleasant.

      Thank you very much.

    • Representation and mediation with a bank:
      Mr. Kaufmann helped me quickly and easily with a legal dispute with my bank. The problem was that the bank did not want to hand over the sale price to me after selling the land, but wanted to repay its own loans first, contrary to the agreement. Mr. Kaufmann was very proactive and reached an agreement with the bank very quickly. This would not have been possible without his support.

    • Finally found a lawyer like Mr. Kaufmann! Previously only had sleepyheads who only woke up when it came to their own bill. Mr. Kaufmanbn stands behind his clients 100%. He tries to get everything out of it that he can. He himself is only satisfied when his clients are satisfied too. He is a fighter. I know from my own experience that this is unfortunately no longer a matter of course for most lawyers these days. So thank you once again.

    • We came to Mr. Kaufmann with a very complex tax matter. At the beginning we didn’t have the feeling that we could solve the matter in a positive way. In the course of the proceedings, however, we increasingly got the feeling that we had chosen the right lawyer. Competent, helpful and always a solution on the table. Nice, competent advice and implementation. With his help, we brought it to a good end and a lot of stones fell from our hearts. All in all, the right step. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your help and advice.
