Germany - Disciplinary Procedure

Hi all

We are hiring some new staff in Germany. Like in the UK, I was wondering if we need to attach a disciplinary procedure along with the employment contract or refer to the location of the procedure when we give the employment contract to the employee?

  • Hi Luis,

    We have not included a disciplinary procedure with contracts for our German employees and I am not aware of it being a requirement. 

    It would however be worthwhile establishing the  key elements of this procedure (and others that may differ from UK statututory requirements) so that you are prepared.
