Labour law in Germany

In cooperation with the Employment Agency and the International Office of the 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 online meeting on labour law in Germany on 20 January from 4:30 pm to 6 pm.
We organise a video meeting for international students. It will take place in German language. You can also ask your 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, 18.01.2021 (23:59 hrs). All registered participants will receive the access data by e-mail on Tuesday, 19.01.2021. A separate registration confirmation will not be sent.

Employment Agency: Labour market for international academics in Germany

In cooperation with the Employment Agency and the International Office of the Heinrich Heine University.


Many of you will certainly ask yourself how the labour market in Germany has changed as a result of the Corona Pandemic, whether this will have an impact on your opportunities as an academic to find a job after graduation, what this means in concrete terms for someone studying mechanical engineering, social work or architecture, for example, or what this means for your job search for a student part-time job.
If you are interested in these or similar questions, please ask this Ms. Tschense from the Düsseldorf Employment Agency.
We organise a video meeting for international students. It will take place in German language. You can also ask your 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 Ms. Tschense. She will then answer them during the event.

Registration deadline is Monday, 25.01.2021 (23:59 hrs). All registered participants will receive the access data by e-mail on Tuesday, 26.01.2021. A separate registration confirmation will not be sent.
