Dear Madam or Sir,
our first Newsletter in 2017 takes a close look at the reform of the Temporary Agency Workers Act, which is extremely relevant in legal practice. The amended act will enter into force and effect on 1 April 2017.
Another contribution concerns a decision by the Hamm Higher Labour Court, which sets out the requirements for a valid signature on a letter of reference. In addition, we address the Cologne Higher Labour Court's acceptance of the imposition of a EUR 40 penalty for late payment of wages and salaries. Finally, in the contribution "Drugged Driving - Dismissal of a Truck Driver for the Use of Drugs", we elaborate a recent decision of the Sixth Senate of the Federal Labour Court.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!
