What significant changes to employment law in Germany took effect in 2013? And what major reforms are in the pipeline for the year ahead?
A range of legislative changes came into force in 2013, such as the reform for mini- and midi-jobs. For 2014, Germany’s new grand coalition is contemplating even more important changes. For example, a new minimum wage will apply and temporary employments will be limited to a maximum period of 18 months. Moreover, it is planned that employees who have paid pension contributions for 40 years may retire at the age of 63 without any pension deductions.
With thanks to our German member Kliemt & Vollstädt.
