We draft employment contracts under German law
Labour- and Employment law

Good employment contracts lay the foundation for a cooperative and trusting employment relationship

Your employees are the back bone to your business. Without their know-how and commitment, your business would not run smoothly. The foundation for the trust and loyalty of your employees are properly established employment contracts and conditions.

German employment law is not consolidated into a single labour code. It is based instead on the service contract provisions of the German Civil Code and a plethora of individual statutes. We guide you through this tricky area of law. We draw up your employment contracts and in addition to this, we cover the following principal areas:

  • Working of employment contracts for executive managers and managing directors
  • Advice on and litigation employment disputes
  • Advice on labour issues during reorganizations and restructurings.
  • Advice on labour issues regarding (cross-border) transactions and transfers of undertakings
  • Advice on and litigation of disputes between employers and works council
