The German legislator differentiates between two types of labor law: private employment law and collective employment law.
Private employment law for single persons
Private employment law includes the regulations within a legal relationship between single employers and employees. Our specialist lawyer for labor law will inform you on how this relationship is going to take place and which questions might occur.
Collective employment law for trade unions and staff associations
Collective employment law regulates the relation between representatives of employees’ interests (trade unions, works council) and employers as well as employer organizations. These regulations form the basis for an employment contract which our lawyer specialized on labor law will carefully check for you.
Employer and employee in the same legal boat
Whenever our lawyer specialized on labor law drafts out an employment contract, he proofs which legal regulations or collective agreement provisions must be considered. Both employers and employees are subject to relevant legal regulations concerning labor law and collective employment law. This fact limits the individual contractual freedom of the parties in some cases.
