About this book


This book provides practical, business-orientated and accessible guidance on key aspects of German employment and labour law as well as adjoining fields. This second, completely revised edition presents the latest changes in German labour and employment law and jurisprudence. It covers, amongst other newer developments, the statutory minimum wage, changes in agency work, extensive changes in European and German employee data protection law, and includes a completely new chapter on compliance issues in the employment context.

Specialised lawyers with many years of experience explain the legal basis of these aspects of German law, highlight typical practical problems and suggest solutions to those problems. In addition, examples are given on how to best manage legal pitfalls to minimise risks. This book translates employment and labour law for foreign in-house counsels and human resources managers at international companies and provides a clear understanding of the complex legal regulations in Germany.
