In-House Seminars

Already for several years, I have been a professional speaker for the targeted qualification in employment law matters (Public Seminars, Specialist Lectures).

Within the range of my services, I assist companies with further qualification in the personnel sector.

In in-house seminars, the lecturer can cater specifically to the relevant practical questions. The benefit of these events is that the content is specifically geared towards the individual needs of the specific company. The questions of the participants are specific, the transfer of practical knowledge is on a high level.

The seminars are aligned to the individual needs after previous discussion. Target groups: Human resources managers, human resources officers and / or executives.

In the past, the following subject areas were dealt with in in-house seminars or have already been planned:

Compact Seminars

Part 2: Individual employment law: From the job posting to the termination of employment (in particular conclusion of employment contracts, amendment of employment conditions, termination; e.g. proviso of revoking specific parts of remuneration; special requirements for form employment contracts; disciplinary measures)
