Work and career-Labour regulatory framework
What rights and obligations do I have as an employee? How are my working hours regulated? What do I have to consider in the event of termination? These and similar legal questions in connection with an employment relationship are regulated by labor law.
Here you will find information about formalities related to this subject:
Labor court proceedings; filing of a complaint with the labor court
You can file a lawsuit with the labor court in case of disputes arising from the employment relationship.
Working time; monitoring
The labor inspectorates at the governments monitor compliance with the Working Hours Act and, in exceptional cases, approve, among other things, work on Sundays and public holidays, as well as, in individual cases, an increase in the maximum permissible working hours with appropriate compensation.
Construction worker protection; monitoring
The labor inspectorates monitor working conditions on construction sites.
Professional tribunal proceedings; implementation
The Public Prosecutor General's Office conducts investigations into breaches of professional duty by lawyers based in its district and, if necessary, initiates legal proceedings by submitting an accusation.
