Webcast in German language – feel free to contact any member of our team for explanations in English. 


With effect from 1 August 2022, the European Directive (EU) 2019/1152 on transparent and predictable working conditions has been implemented. Due to the new law, changes have mainly occurred in the Evidence Act ("NachwG 2022"). Also affected are the Temporary Employment Act ("AÜG"), the Part-Time and Fixed-Term Employment Act ("TzBfG") and the Industrial Code ("GewO"). As a result of the implementation, employment contract terms and conditions must be recorded even more extensively in future than before, as a fine may now be imposed in the event of a breach of the obligations to provide evidence.


In our webcast we will discuss

  • the main changes in the Evidence Act,
  • which obligations employers will have in the future,
  • potential sanctions in the event of violations and
  • explain what concrete action is required.

In addition, the NachwG 2022 also contains, among other things, increased written information obligations for employers regarding the content of existing occupational pension commitments (bAV commitments) vis-à-vis the beneficiary employees. The statutory provisions on the scope of the increased information obligations for occupational pension commitments are in some cases ambiguous in terms of their content and allow for possibilities in terms of content. In individual cases, it may make sense or even be advisable to use the readjustment of the content directly to adjust the content of the occupational pension commitments and to make the occupational pension commitment "future-proof" again. Employers must therefore currently check the documentation of existing occupational pension commitments for their conformity with the NachwG 2022 and make any adjustments to the content.
