  1. work contracts

    He is at arbeitamt tomorrow.  Great news though, he has already been asked to put in his CV for a new job. The new property that we bought is almost finished with the renovations, so we can get up for sale and hopefully find a bungalow to buy.. someone from the company came yesterday with a letter to give to the arbeitamt and apologised again..

    Could someone please post the link for online registration at arbeitamt. My husband had a full contract at the place in mid Germany. Because of the nature of his job he could not continue after Brexit.  When Brexit didn't they thought he would go back and gave his new job to someone else. They did not realise that I have a life changing illness and can not be left for weeks at s time. He has now been sacked as there us no position for him.
  3. work contracts

    Yesterday it happened. My husband was sacked because the position,  that he moved across Germany for, no longer is available.  They are very sorry etc. The position was available at the beginning of the year but rather than move him straight away he had to carry on until April in old post and now the new one has gone . He could return to his old post for a month but they have filled that position.  My husband can not leave me for a  month because of the illness that is affecting my mobility and sight.  We need to move to one level living and can not proceed with the next property  because he is now unemployed  at his age he will not find work easily despite his qualifications . Something really stinks here

    It's a lot of money to lose but I'm annoyed that they promised to pay 160 hours but we are to only get 400. He actually used to work all hours, so the loss is huge.

    Huge shock. After being told my husband would receive 160 hours pay, today he was told that because he hasn't worked, he will only get €400. Hes not worked because he has been told no department has a space for him. Before we transferred he had a choice of positions. He has been told to return to mid Germany to his old position.  Thus forcing us to separate.  He has refused as I have developed some serious health issues. I need to be taken  to various appointments.  On Monday my husband will be sacked. He us actively looking for a new job but in the meantime we will live out of the freezer and hope we can pay all of our bills

    No we moved in order for my husband to stay in a job that he knew. Today he went again to his new office and again left without getting to see anyone. He was told to go today.  He is now applying for another job. He's really not happy working for such rude people.  We can take a cut in wages if it means less stress

    They will pay him for 160 hours for the month they have not used him but so far he must still return to his old job. he is seeing someone next week. I guess if this goes ahead then our son will have a choice of which parent to go to when he´s home from uni. This - is in a country that promotes family life.!

    They are now giving him back his old position which happens to be where we used to live. We moved to be near his transfer job. As soon as we got here that job disappeared.  Everyone expected Brexit to happen.  The company that he works for really do not care. They get my husband back in the position that they want him. If they split up a family it is not their problem.   His contract states that he is employed full time. Far from refusing to work, he has telephoned and messaged asking for his start date. He was given lots of excuses until today they told him to return to his old position.  We sold our home, left our friends,  I gave up my work and way of life. We can't afford to just go back. My husband has to leave us

    Yes this stinks. Now Brexit isn't happening he has been told that he must return to his old job in mid Germany.  That leaves me on my own on the north coast.  I knew as soon as he starred being given excuses at the start of the month that there was a problem. How can large companies destroy peoples lives like this
  10. work contracts

    I am sure what they are doing is illegal. We´d be better off if they sacked him. Apparently they have no grounds because he is excellent at what he does. His only problem is being an outsider. ( not because he  is english).  They don´t like people from other parts of Germany. For now its looking like we have to go without money for a month then my husband will leave to work back at his old place leaving me to live alone. This is the way with our German friends here also. The husband lives here, his wife commutes every weekend because she can not get work here. She is in the medical profession
  11. We have a similar problem but we can not get an electrician out. we did have one. he was an electrician/plumber. he hooked the toilet flush up to the hot water so we have little confidence. He started the wiring then left instructions for us to complete . In the oven we have a yellow/ green, a blue, a brown and 2 blacks. we have fed these into a connector thing we hope in the right order. then we have to connect the wires from the main cable . however these are brown, black, blue, GREY and then green/yellow
  12. work contracts

    Yes the contract still exists. In fact his old boss wants him back at least until we see what this Brexit drama is going to bring this time. That way we get an income but leaves me on my own in a house that is still being renovated. we´ll certainly not starve but we need to pay our bills. His old boss is looking into it because he arranged the transfer in the first place and was horrified that my husband wasn´t working. Would we have any rights to claim money from the places that help people. We´ve never ever had to do this, we have always worked, saved and sorted out our finances without help. would they consider us not eligible.  I think we´ll be forced to separate again. As an ex army wife of 35 years i´m used to this but I don´t really want to do it
  13. Being the outsider in a village

    We actually fully intended to run the bar, an english tea room and we even had bookings for the function room that we intended to honour. the council actually closed the kitchens. The roof has been replaced, the plumbing has been reinstated. The electrician is here right now trying to put the electrics back. We have a lot of decorating and plastering to do still. The kitchens have to be gutted and cleaned and theres still a huge hole in the ceiling of the function roof. The water supply has a huge question mark over it We closed the pub because its not actually legal to poison people with salmonella
  14. Being the outsider in a village

    I´m sure these events are not boring however if I go out with my husband I want to sit with him
  15. Being the outsider in a village

    Not so simple. The previous owner also cut all the water pipes to the upstairs rooms, removed the radiators, refused to do any repairs. We are being forced to live in the bar while all the restoration goes on. also all the cooking fat was tipped down the rainwater drain so that has to be cleared. The best bit was he also cut the toilet waste pipes from upstairs. all of this takes time and money. We´ll get there but when we do we are selling. I don´t want to live in a village where i´m ignored because i´m a woman
