Employment law

Data protection and labour law have a large overlap:

employee data protection / staff data protection


No data protection advice is possible without in-depth knowledge of labour law. For this reason, we also have specially trained lawyers in the field of labour law, who are able to advise you on data protection law as well as on data protection issues to be able to offer well-founded advice as well as to assist in special labour law issues.

Typical ques­tions of em­ployee data protec­tion:

  • Processing of private employee data in the company
    (email usage, mobile devices, BYOD, etc.)
  • Questions of applicant management / recruiting
  • Operational integration management / patient return talks
  • Employees' right to information
  • Employee monitoring

In addition to these issues, which are usually associated with data protection aspects, we also advise both companies and employees, detached from data protection, on the following topics, among others:


  • Preparation and review of employment contracts
  • Advice on dismissals and dismissal protection suits
  • termination agreements
  • Fulfilment of the certificate requirements
  • Elaboration of works agreements
  • Advice on the negotiation of works agreements
  • Enforcement of the rights of the works council
  • Advising the works council on data protection law
  • Advice and negotiation of social plans
