Tech companies in all sectors have laid off over 250,000 tech workers since the beginning of 2022, while reporting record earnings. Are you or your colleagues affected, too? Come learn about your rights in case of dismissal, and other tips about German labor law.

Over 250,000 tech workers have been laid off since the beginning of 2022, while companies like Meta, Microsoft, and Salesforce report better than expected earnings. Employees must accept flatlining salaries, while CEOs enjoy pay raises. After years of successfully working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, employees are being told to return to the office or quit. Tech is not delivering on its promise to employees. We already know our workplaces are driven by profit and the whims of executives.

What happens when you are included in the next round of layoffs? Know your rights! Join up with your colleagues!

Come to our interactive session to learn about German labor law and your rights in the case of dismissal. We look forward to meeting you!
