People first!

Works Constitution Act: Staff policy (WoCo 2)

The strictly practice-oriented training seminar “People first!” provides you with the necessary knowledge to handle staff policy matters in the best possible way and to the benefit of the employees.

“Staff policy” is the general term for an area of labour law that is often highly emotionally charged for those involved. Recruitment, transfer, wage grouping and dismissal – these are decisions that usually have a lasting impact on individual employees.

In all these cases, the works council is needed. No dismissal or recruitment can happen without the works council, and no transfer or wage grouping should proceed without its participation! To avert possible harm to the employees, every member of the works council must be familiar with the basic provisions of the Works Constitution Act regarding staff policy.

In this training seminar, you will learn these basics in a concise and practical way.
