Legal Training

For HR-Manager

Continuing education is essential for everyone, including the HR department, especially when the HR manager of an international corporation is also responsible for the personnel of the German subsidiary. A foreign HR manager who might not speak German fluently, has to face even higher challenges.

Our training on German employment law for you as a manager in charge will cover basic topics on German employment law as well as questions on how to deal with difficult situations.

Ning Zhang, a German qualified lawyer, will provide you with a basic understanding of relevant topics in German employment law in an understandable manner.

The in-house training can be offered online (online seminar) or offline (presence seminar).
