Update Employment Law


Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek Dear Readers,

On August 25, the German government extended various corona measures. In terms of employment law, the focus is on extending to 24 months the period for which short-time work compensation is paid.

In addition, the list of high-risk countries („Risikogebiete“) has been growing again for several weeks now. Can employers force staff members returning from vacation to take a corona test?

Find this and more in the current issue of our update.

I wish you an interesting reading.
