A particular focus of her work within employment law is in the area of dismissal protection law.

In Germany, the termination protection system plays a crucial role in employment law, ensuring a fair and balanced relationship between employers and employees. The „Kündigungsschutz“, or protection against dismissal, is designed to safeguard employees from arbitrary or unjust termination.

Under German law, employers are generally required to provide valid reasons for terminating an employment contract, and dismissals are subject to strict scrutiny. There are specific grounds for termination, such as misconduct, incapacity, or operational reasons. Additionally, employers must follow procedural requirements, including providing written notice and, in some cases, obtaining approval from the relevant employment court.

One key aspect of the „Kündigungsschutz“ is the distinction between ordinary and extraordinary dismissals. Ordinary dismissals involve terminations with notice, whereas extraordinary dismissals are immediate and typically require severe misconduct on the part of the employee.

Employees in Germany also have the right to challenge dismissals they believe are unfair. This often involves filing a claim with the labor court within three weeks after receiving the termination letter, which can lead to reinstatement or compensation if the termination is deemed unjust.

In summary, the „Kündigungsschutz“ framework in Germany emphasizes the protection of employees, ensuring that terminations are justified and follow a transparent and lawful process. This system seeks to maintain a balance between the interests of employers and employees, fostering a fair and stable employment environment.
