Germany is among the top attractive European countries for corporate growth, with one of the highest GDPs globally. The country’s thriving industries include automobiles, engineering, healthcare, and services. However, the country’s strict international labor regulations may discourage businesses from establishing themselves in Germany. The labor regulations are renowned for their robust worker protections, such as six weeks of paid sick leave, 20 days of yearly vacation, limitations on working on Sundays and holidays, written employment agreements, a maximum of 48 hours of work per week, paid maternity leave, and strict laws governing employment termination to avoid wrongful dismissal.
Moreover, since 2017, businesses employing people in Germany must acquire an AUG or temporary license. The vague and ambiguous nature of these licensing requirements increases the risk of non-compliance, particularly for emerging companies. Consequently, entering Europe’s largest economy has become increasingly challenging. In this situation, our professional PEO services can provide assistance.
