Labour law in Germany

In cooperation with the International Office of Heinrich Heine University.

If you are looking for an internship/job or are already employed, you as a foreign student will have many questions about your rights and obligations as an employee and indeed there are a lot of things to consider. For example, what is the difference between an internship, a mini-job, a student job and a full-time job? What payment am I entitled to during an internship? Can I simply be dismissed? Am I entitled to paid sick days in a mini-job? Can temporary workers take paid leave?
Our labour law expert Tobias Pfister will answer these and other questions at an meeting on labour law in Germany on 08 December from 4:30 pm to 6 pm.
The event will be in German but you are welcome to ask questions in English.
Please register HERE. Please let us know your questions in advance. We will collect all questions from you and forward them anonymously to Mr. Pfister. He will then answer them during the event.

Registration deadline is Monday, 06.12.2021 (23:59 hrs).
A separate registration confirmation will not be sent.
