ABOUT THE NATIONAL CONTEXT FOR OPENING UP SHOP
When setting up a business in Germany, the relatively high standard of employee rights provided by the German labour and employment law needs to be taken into consideration. From our experience, foreign companies considering an expansion to Germany are often surprised and somewhat discouraged when they learn more about the German labour and employment law system. We are aware of the fact that it is challenging to ensure compliance with the unfamiliar legal requirements of another country. However, with the right know-how and expert support, many difficulties can be avoided or at least moderated. Therefore, we provide a brief summary below on the essential labour and employment law as well as corporate law requirements, which aims to offer your company a first overview of the legal framework for opening up shop in Germany.
