Your employment contract with CheckYourRight

Unfortunately, the trouble often starts with the employment contract. Under no circumstances should you sign this unread. Stumbling blocks can exist that cause you problems later. Checking your right helps you to know and to respect your employment law.

On the following points you should pay attention to your employment contract:

  • Detailed job description and definition: here you should emphasize that your job and your tasks are described exactly. The more inaccurate they are formulated, the faster the employer can interpret them in their favor and expect, for example, overtime. Also, you could be moved against your will in a completely different field of work.
  • Trial period and limited employment: Again, precise formulations are helpful in case of dispute. A probationary period may not last longer than six months and if you should only be employed for a certain time, this time limit must also clearly be defined in the contract.


Protection against dismissal with CheckYourRight

One of the most common issues in labor law concerns dismissals. Only a few employees check whether they are covered by dismissal protection. For a dismissal protection suit the following conditions must be met:

  • The company in which you are employed must have more than 10 employees.
  • You must be permanently employed for more than 6 months.

But do not wait too long. If you have not responded within 3 weeks after receipt of the written notice, this is valid.

You should also make sure that the notice period has been adhered to. This depends on contractual agreements, but also on legal requirements. As a rule, the following notice periods apply: For a duration of employment of

  • 0 to 6 months: 2 weeks to any day
  • 7 months to 2 years: 4 weeks (not one month!) On the 15th or the end of the calendar month
  • 2 years: 1 month at the end of the calendar month (always valid from here)
  • 5 years: 2 months
  • 8 years: 3 months
  • 10 years: 4 months
  • 12 years: 5 months
  • 15 years: 6 months
  • 20 years: 7 months


Compensation with CheckdeinRecht

Sometimes the termination is even convenient, so you do not want to defend against it. But then it can make sense to have your chances for a compensation examined by the cooperation lawyers of CheckYourRight.

In employment law, it is clearly required that you have been employed by your employer for at least 6 months in order to have a prospect of receiving it.
