Labor and social law
Labor law regulates, among other things, the relationship between the employer and the employee. This relationship starts with the job advertisement or application and leads all the way through to the termination of the employment relationship. In some cases, for example the reimbursement of training costs or non-competition clauses, it might even go beyond the employment relationship. There are legal provisions that must be observed, some of which are mandatory. However, in labour law matters not only the legal provisions must be observed, but also the contents of the collective agreement must be checked. If an employment relationship has already been established, there is usually also an employment contract, and in some companies there are also works agreements, the contents of which must of course also be observed.
Due to the large number of existing provisions, as well as due to the often very complex facts, it is becoming increasingly important to take legal advice in good time, whereby we can help you with legal questions before or during the conclusion of an employment relationship, in particular also the preparation or legal review of employment contracts. We will be happy to provide advice on all questions during and after the end of an employment relationship, in order to possibly avoid future disputes in advance.
However, if court proceedings are unavoidable, we will of course also be happy to represent you in court in proceedings before the labour and social courts (e.g. challenges to termination and dismissal, assertion of open claims from the employment relationship or defense against unjustified claims, enforcement or defense against material/immaterial claims for damages as a result of discrimination or non-discrimination before or during the employment relationship, etc.). Since many companies/entrepreneurs or employees have appropriate insurance, we are of course happy to clarify in advance whether there is legal protection cover in this regard.
In addition to representing you in labour law matters, we are of course also happy to represent you in social law matters before the labour and social courts, with our main focus in social law being in the area of nursing care allowance and childcare allowance. Since social law is included in the scope of insurance for many legal protection insurances, we are of course happy to clarify in advance whether there is legal protection cover in this regard.
