Relations between German employers and employees are extensively regulated under German labor and employment law. German labour and employment law is strongly biased in favour of employees and is probably best referred to as the „employee protection law”.  Foreign companies not experienced in German labour and employment need to be aware of all legal requirements for staff employed in Germany. It must be assured for the staff that their employment terms comply with all legal requirements and that these terms serve the objectives of the new company. Thus, it is important to know the applicable labour and employment statutes.
