Individual Labour Law – Collective Labour Law
Challenges when leading employees
Labour law in Germany is rather different from the labour law in other countries, especially in the UK, the United States and in Asia. The seminar introduces foreign managers to the basics of German labour law. Although a lot of topics in every day working life are governed by mandatory rules and regulations stipulated on a federal as well as a national level, German Law also leaves room for flexibility. As the concept of social partnership goes back a long time, the system of checks and balances needs a closer look to gain an understanding for its limits as well as its chances.
A large part of the seminar deals with the challenges of leading employees. This includes questions concerning the employer´s discretionary right and the subject of remote working. We will also talk about the approach to performance issues such as will, ill and skill.
Whenever appropriate, you will be familiarised with the role and the rights and obligations of the works council on the sub- ject of co-determination.
Both our trainers are very experienced. They will answer your questions comprehensively and give you practical advice.
