Attorney labor law Frankfurt a.M. - Our main focus

Dismissal and action for protection against dismissal

Attorney Labor Law Frankfurt am Main: You have received a notice of termination ? Then you should act quickly. After you have received the notice of termination, you must take legal action against the termination within three weeks. If you do nothing and let the three weeks pass, the termination will become effective, regardless of whether the termination was justified in the matter or not. Therefore, you should contact us as soon as possible so that we can help you in time, e.g. by filing an action for protection against dismissal on your behalf.

Severance pay

Attorney Labor Law Frankfurt am Main; When negotiating with the employer regarding a severance package, many mistakes can be made. Therefore, it is important to have a lawyer at your side to support you in the negotiations

Termination agreement

By means of a termination agreement, the employer and the employee mutually agree that the employment relationship will be terminated. Termination agreements are more common in practice because both parties to the contract may have perfectly understandable reasons for terminating the employment relationship by mutual agreement. However, since difficulties may arise, for example, if the employee wants to draw unemployment benefits "seamlessly" after termination (so-called blocking period), it is better to seek advice from a competent lawyer beforehand.

Job reference

The job reference is extremely important for the professional career. This is especially true for the job market in Germany. While in other countries the "paper form" is not the all-important feature, in Germany it is still extremely important that the "paper form" is correct. Since the language in job references is not always comprehensible to the "layman", you should seek expert advice from us here and, if necessary, insist on the issue of a new reference.


If the employee violates his obligations under the employment contract, the employer may reprimand the employee by issuing a warning to the employee. The purpose of the warning is to make the employee aware of his misconduct and thus also to give him the opportunity to improve. However, the issuance of a warning is, of course, also subject to strict conditions. Together with you, we will decide how you can best defend yourself against the warning.
