Overview: Labour Rights

Many workers within and outside of the European Union want to find waged labor within Germany quickly. This also leads to the exploitation of workers by their bosses. The bosses think that foreigners know less about their legal rights and capitalize on this. This flyer summarizes the most important information on the German labor law.

If you feel that you are being exploited or treated unfairly—do not stay alone with it! The FAU is a labor union and can help you. A (first) consultation with the FAU is always free of charge!

If you then want to proceed, a membership is not expensive (e.g., 5€ per month) and helps you to fight back. The FAU is a union in Germany, which has branches (called “syndicates”) in many cities.
