Karstadt employees prepare for first layoffs! Real announces the first closures of 8 stores!
It is now important for the affected employees to act in good time and not just when the first termination agreements and redundancy notices start to arrive. It is recommendedch to contact an employment attorney early on and seek advice.
Employees should not be afraid of suing for protection against dismissal. However, it must be noted that this must be filed with the competent labor court within 3 weeks after receipt of the termination for operational reasons. In order to achieve a higher severance payment, employees should definitely take this step!
In many termination agreements, unfortunately, the severance payments offered are far too often too low! Here, too, the involvement of a lawyer can already lead to significantly better offers from the other side.
In the case of many letters of termination, a formal error, among other things, can lead to these being successfully challenged in court. As a rule, this leads to the employee being in a significantly better negotiating position vis-à-vis his employer.
According to §613a (4) of the German Civil Code (BGB), a termination due to a transfer of an undertaking is also invalid and therefore not legally binding!
