Employees expect flexible working hours

Studies like the Monster Recruiting Trends show that many employees expect work-life balance and flexible working hours from their employers, but the subject is still subject to many reservations.

Employees, especially those of the young generation, want to decide for themselves when and where they work. On the other hand, according to the study of Monster also fear loss of productivity due to difficult communication.

Rigid working time laws obstruct flexibility

Employers often fear this, while others - most notably Microsoft or Coca-Cola - are already giving their employees a completely free hand in designing their working hours.

However, from the point of view of the employer, this often conflicts with rigid working hours laws. So demands of the Federal association of the labor lawyers in Company (BVAU). As recently stated by BVAU President Alexander R. Zumkeller:

“Labor law needs to be adjusted through deregulation. To set up a day or a week for yourself, to make the schedule dependent on weather, friends, children - this conflicts with an eleven-hour rest period or a ban on working on Sundays. ”

New Laws in Time Work

Legislative changes could also soon change in terms of temporary agency work. Because the grand coalition has agreed the "further development" of temporary agency work in the coalition agreement. The projects include the introduction of equal pay for temporary workers and permanent employees after nine months (equal pay) and a maximum leasing period of 18 months for temporary workers in the same customer company.

Another aspect of corporate digitization: more and more employees are on the road in social networks. This raises an abundance of legal issues, for which both entrepreneurs and employees have to develop sensitivity. In addition to issues relating to data protection and labor law, it also deals with issues related to copyright, advertising, expressions, juvenile protection and criminal law.

Matching events on the future staff

On these topics, there are a number of exciting events on the future staff, led by the 15.-17. September in Cologne.
