“Arriving and getting” – Input for migrants on labor law and co-determination

Getting a foothold in the working world is particularly challenging for migrants. How does working in Germany work? What are the rules and, above all, what rights do I have as an employee? What rights do I have as an employee? These are basics that people who have grown up in other countries cannot know per se and that their future employer does not necessarily tell them. Because they often profit from this lack of knowledge and take advantage of it.

We want to change that! With basic information about the education system and all the things you encounter in your working life. Be it, the child is sick, vacation entitlement, short-time work, etc.. We want to educate – and thus support migrants to be able to appear self-confident and self-determined in working life.
