Employment Notice Periods in Germany
Whether you are an employee or an employer in Germany it is vital to know the law when it comes to notice periods. People changing work or being dismissed is a regular occurrence in the world of business. Subsequently, notice periods are vital for allowing both employees and employers to plan for the future. The requirement for a notice period is dependant on the nature of the dismissal and the period of time involved in the notice period is based on a variety of factors, primarily the length of time a person has worked with a firm. Extraordinary termination allows for dismissal without the need for a notice period. However, this type of dismissal needs to follow certain rules and laws.
