FAQ - Questions about labour law

We have a great team. But our managers or the HR managers are sometimes unsure how to properly deal with labour law issues. Can you provide us training?

Of course! Our employment lawyers regularly train both with classic and online venues. If you wish, we can come to you and train you in-house, adapted to meet your needs. Just get in touch!

We believe that we pay our employees decently. But dissatisfaction among the workforce is mounting, and some employees feel like they are treated worse than others. We are also witnessing this at Kununu & Co. Can you help?

Do you have a transparent remuneration system? Can your employees understand their salary? Do you grant benefits that don't cost you much, but that your employee might appreciate? There are countless possibilities - from more traditional petrol or meal vouchers to job bikes. Let's discuss everything openly. We are familiar with all kinds of arrangements and schemes and will be glad to work with you to develop new ideas for your company and support you in implementing them.

Our employees frequently work at the transnational level. What do we need to keep in mind?

We live in an increasingly networked world of work. A salesperson in charge of D-A-CH or Benelux has been a frequent fixture for some time, but business trips to China, the USA or Central Africa have their pitfalls: especially in the areas of social security, tax and labour law. dhpg is optimally prepared to meet your consulting needs, both when it comes to individual business trips as well as for the general approach adopted by your company. Together with our international teams and our network partners, we can support you in whatever country in the world you may need assistance.

I can arrange temporary workers without any problem. What is so complicated about that?

You are right: the law is aimed more at manpower providers than at you as the party hiring them. But if something goes wrong legally, you are usually the one who bears the brunt. In the worst case, you will have to make retroactive payments for temporary workers and employ them as your own fixed staff members from that point on. And there are also dangers lurking when staff are exchanged within a group or between "friendly" companies. We will protect you from these perils - and, by the way, we have been advising you for years even if you are a temporary employment agency yourself or want to become one.

I have always been my own boss and have successfully built up my business. Why should I now suddenly pay into a pension scheme just because I have incorporated my company into a limited company and want my daughter to join the management?

Congratulations on your lifetime achievements! Hopefully we will be able to support you on your successful trajectory for many years. Congratulations also on finding a successor! We should talk about how you and your daughter's social security obligations are going to look, however. Now that you are no longer making decisions entirely on your own, our lawmakers believe that you are more in need of protection than you perhaps feel and than you even may be. And rules in this regard have become much stricter in recent years. So before you see your joint success being whittled away through expensive additional payments and unpleasant investigation procedures, let's go through what to do together. Perhaps the obligation to pay social security contributions can even be avoided altogether; sometimes it is not such a bad thing after all.
