Wednesday 8 December 2021 // Labour Law in Germany // *in German, English questions welcome*

4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Online meeting

In cooperation with the International Office of Heinrich Heine University.

If you are looking for an internship/job or are already employed, you as a foreign student will have many questions about your rights and obligations as an employee and indeed there are a lot of things to consider. For example, what is the difference between an internship, a mini-job, a student job and a full-time job? What payment am I entitled to during an internship? Can I simply be dismissed? Am I entitled to paid sick days in a mini-job? Can temporary workers take paid leave?
Our labour law expert will answer these and other questions at an online meeting on labour law.

The event will be in German but you are welcome to ask questions in English.

Please register HERE (link will follow). Please let us know your questions in advance. We will collect all questions from you and forward them anonymously to Mr. Pfister. He will then answer them during the event.

Registration deadline is Monday, 06.12.2021 (23:59 hrs).

All registered participants will receive the access data by e-mail on Tuesday, 07.12.2021. A separate registration confirmation will not be sent.

4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Online meeting

In cooperation with the Employment Agency and the International Office of Heinrich Heine University.

Many of you will certainly ask yourselves how the labour market in Germany has changed as a result of the Corona Pandemic, whether this will have an impact on your opportunities as an academic to find a job after graduation, what this means in concrete terms for someone studying mechanical engineering, social work or architecture, for example, or what this means for your job search for a student part-time job.
If you are interested in these or similar questions, please ask this Ms. Tschense from the Düsseldorf Employment Agency.

The event will be in German but you are welcome to ask questions in English.

Please register here (link will follow). Please let us know your questions in advance. We will collect all questions from you and forward them anonymously to Ms. Tschense. She will then answer them during the event.
