The field of employment law regulates the relation between employers and employees, as well as the relations between unions, works councils, staff advisors, employee representative bodies or commissions and employers' associations and employers. It is not uniformly codified, but encompasses all laws, legal ordinances and other provisions on dependent employment. These include the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB), the Posted Workers Act (Arbeitnehmer-Entsendegesetz, AEntG), the Employment Protection Act (Kündigungsschutzgesetz, KSchG), the Temporary Employment Act (Arbeitnehmerüberlassungsgesetz, AÜG), the Vocational Training Act (Berufsbildungsgesetz, BBiG) and the collective agreements, to name just a few.

The interests of those involved in an employment relationship are diverse. Both employers and employees desire a legally secure regulation of their relationship. The contractual arrangement should therefore comprehensively address everyday work and regulate the possible end of the employment. For example, by means of a correct time limit. Employers want to keep an eye on changes in employment law during the often longer term of employment in order to always act in a legally secure manner. The varied everyday work also results in individual cases that need to be dealt with. For employees, protecting their own rights in everyday work, protection against unjustified dismissals and negotiating reasonable severance payments are of paramount importance.
