Dear Madam or Sir,
in our last Newsletter for 2016 (finalised in 2017), we address the Flexi-Pension Act, which will take effect on 1 January 2017.
In addition, the issue of whether the decision handed down by the Federal Labor Court on the minimum wage in the nursing sector can be applied to the Minimum Wage Act is discussed under "Limitation Periods and the Minimum Wage".
We also consider a decision on whether bonuses and overtime payments count towards the minimum wage. Another contribution examines VW’s recent highly publicized dispute with its suppliers and the issue of whether the prerequisites for the payment of shorttime work allowances were met.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!
