Organized in cooperation with the Employers' Association of the Private Banking Industry (AGV), this symposium provides a compact overview of current developments in labor and social law. Important rulings for corporate practice in labor law will be presented in detail and discussed with sufficient time for questions and problems of the participants.
The first major labor law legislative project of the now not-so-new traffic light coalition in labor law was the implementation of the EU Working Conditions Directive.
As a result of the implementation law, which will apply from August 1, 2022, the Evidence Act, which previously led a "shadow existence" in labor law, acquires real significance in terms of labor law. The changes affect all employment relationships. In many companies, therefore, the question arises as to what content must now be newly regulated in employment and apprenticeship contracts and whether existing contracts also require adaptation. The conference will take a detailed look at the new provisions in the Verification Act and how they can be implemented.
The implementation of the EU Directive also entails adjustments to part-time and fixed-term employment law. In particular, on-call work has been placed on a new legal footing. Additional rights to justification and information were also introduced in part-time employment law and for temporary workers vis-à-vis their hirer.
If draft legislation on the other eagerly awaited legislative projects, in particular on mobile work and on a reform of the works constitution, is available by the time of the symposium, these will also be included in the topics.
The second part of the conference is traditionally devoted to current case law in labor law. Here, new case law on vacation law - almost a classic at the symposium - will be discussed, in particular on the reduction and limitation of vacation claims. The effects of the AGG will also be discussed in connection with severely disabled employees, the remuneration of part-time employees and the effectiveness of age regulations in company pension schemes.
Recent decisions of the Federal Labor Court are also available on the fairness requirement when concluding termination agreements and on the probative value of certificates of incapacity to work in connection with the termination of employment relationships.
The first direct Corona decision of the BAG on the right to order mandatory testing of employees is discussed, as are questions regarding the effectiveness of works agreements in the absence of a power of attorney for the Works Council Chairman. A first decision also deals with questions of the minimum wage for interns.
Ulf Grimmke and Dr. Jens Thau from the Employers' Association of the Private Banking Industry (Arbeitgeberverband des privaten Bankgewerbes e. V.), Berlin, will be your speakers.
The symposium is aimed at all those responsible for human resources and labor law.
