Works Council Training Module 1

Seminar in English

A growing number of companies in Germany have a multinational composition with English as the official language of communication. The requirements of German labour law and the Works Council Constitution Act (BetrVG) are unique and can lead to many traps and misunderstandings, especially between local staff and a foreign management. We offer a three-day Works Council Training on the basic tenets of the BetrVG.
