People first!

Works Constitution Act: Staff policy (WoCo 2)

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

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

In all these cases, the statutory representation is required because: No dismissal and no recruitment without the works council, no transfer or grading without its participation! To avert possible harm to the employees of the company, every member of the works council must be familiar with the basic provisions of the Works Constitution Act.

In this training you will learn these basics in a compact and practical way.
