Newsletter: „Employment law information in a nutshell“


The newsletter informs my clients about employment law judgments and relevant topics within Employment Law. „In a nutshell“ means that the information provided gives a structured and to the point overview.

This service is not only available to my clients but also to any other interested parties. However, please understand that I reserve the right to limit the sending of the newsletter if necessary.

Note: An English version is available upon request.

The information about employment law matters is broken down into three areas:


  • Preventive legal advice
  • Employment law in practice
  • Employment law in strategic decisions
As desired, the newsletter can be sent via mail or via e-mail (attachment in pdf format). Please also let me know (Contact) should you wish to unsubscribe.

When the newsletters will be sent out depends largely on legislation and relevant judicial decisions. Comments complete these areas.
