German Terms of Employment

CK - Washington.   German employment law may be one of the neglected practice areas, in terms of English-language coverage.

In the international context, the statutes and precedent on German employment matters, Arbeitsrecht, assume a somewhat unique position, however, at least from a German perspective. Germany believes that her legal system causes few, if any, extraterritorial effects. Employment law proves the exception. German law can easily conflict with American law in employment matters, and its extraterritorial reach is undeniable.

Berlin attorney Jessica Ohle provided an overview of German compensation rules and practices in English, in her note Recent Trends in German Employee Compensation, 17 German American Law Journal, on October 2, 2008.
