The decision to terminate employment contracts can be made for a wide variety of reasons. We advise on a range of alternative courses of action, in particular terminations and dismissals. Due to their flexibility, amicable mutual terminations can also often be advisable. Of course, we also provide support in the case of contentious separations and accompany you through proceedings before the labor courts, if this becomes necessary.
For some forms of separation, it may also be necessary to involve the works council. The intensity with which this must be done depends, for example, on whether notice of termination or dismissal is to be given.
If you intend to separate from a large number of employees or from several older employees at once, the rules on mass dismissal must also be observed.
We will be happy to advise you in all these matters and help you to make the right decisions.
