  2. Have you done your research about when and if you can cut trees?

     

    „Neben diesen regionalen Gesetzen gibt es noch lokale Vorschriften. Kommunale Baumschutzsatzungen beinhalten ortsspezifische Besonderheiten. So kann dort festgehalten sein, ab welchem Stammumfang ein Baum nicht gefällt werden darf oder welche Baumart generell in der Kommune oder im Landkreis geschützt ist. Es ist den Kommunen und Landkreisen jedoch selber überlassen, ob sie eine solche Verordnung für sich erlassen.

     

    Die Vorschriften können in den unteren Naturschutzbehörden eingesehen werden, in der Regel sind dies die lokalen Naturschutzämter. In den Landesnaturschutzgesetzen sind mögliche Bußgelder festgeschrieben, die durch die Behörden vollstreckt werden können. In Thüringen können beispielsweise Bußgelder bis 50.000 Euro bei Verstößen gegen die Vorschriften geahndet werden.“

    . The bushes block less than 50% of her view in any case as there are two bushes in opposite corners and there is nothing in between them, so the river is still clearly in view from their lounge. I think she wants to be able to see it from her bedroom as again, but to me this a simply a cheek. 

    My worry for now is only where we stand legally. 

     

     

    If they are blocking light to your neighbours flat, they may have a case.

    ...First of all we never carry out these works on Sundays or public holidays. 

    Secondly we are keeping well within the specified times, i.e. we carry out work from 9.30 until 12 and from 1:30 til 7 pm at the latest. 

    Nonetheless we still receive complaints from these (our only) neighbours. And they bang on the floor anytime after 5.30 pm, earlier still if it is Saturday. 

     

     

    Are you renovating six days a week? Most tradesman finish work around 4.00 p.m. If your neighbours return home or are at home all day and must put up with the noise you are making until 7.00 p.m. six days a week, can’t you understand why they get angry?

     

    „Sind in der Hausordnung keine Angaben zu finden, gelten die gesetzlichen Vorgaben. Demnach sind die Ruhezeiten mittags von 13 bis 15 Uhr und abends von 20 Uhr bis morgens um 7 Uhr. An Sonn- und Feiertagen gelten die Ruhezeiten ganztägig. Nachtruhe herrscht von 22 Uhr bis 6 Uhr. Um Ihre Nachbarn nicht zu stören, sollten Sie in dieser Zeit beispielsweise Musizieren und lautes Musikhören vermeiden und auch keine geräuschintensiven Haushaltsgeräte wie den Staubsauger oder die Waschmaschine anwerfen.“

  5. You must register with the Agentur für Arbeit as soon as you realise your contract will be terminated. According to the regulations, three months before your contract ends or within three days of your contract ending if you didn’t know beforehand. Failure to do so means you will not receive any financial support for a certain period of time.    

     

    "Rückt das Ende des Arbeitsverhältnisses immer näher, droht ggf. die Arbeitslosigkeit. Damit es aber gar nicht erst so weit kommt, sollten Sie sich bei der Agentur für Arbeit arbeitssuchend melden. Die Frist für die Meldung liegt bei drei Monaten vor Beendigung des Arbeitsverhältnisses.

    Wann muss ich mich arbeitssuchend melden, wenn ich erst später Kenntnis von dem Ende erhalte? Dann müssen Sie sich innerhalb von drei Arbeitstagen arbeitssuchend melden (§ 38 Abs.1 SGB). Halten Sie sich nicht an diese Fristen, tritt eine Sperrzeit ein."

    https://www.arbeitslosenselbsthilfe.org/arbeitssuchend-melden/

     

    Even if you thought you would begin a new job within 30 days you should have registered with the Agentur für Arbeit for the time in between jobs.

     

    You could register online and make an appointment to explain your situation that you have no income etc. but expect a lot of questions and paperwork.

  6. Well we now have 33 days to Brexit.

     

    According to the latest Goverment info:   

     

    If there’s no deal, UK nationals will not need visas for short stays elsewhere in the EU. You will be able to stay up to 90 days in another EU, EEA or EFTA country, within a 180 day period. You must retain evidence of travel (e.g. train and plane tickets), in case these are requested by national authorities. If you hold a residence permit from an EU, EEA or EFTA country, you will be able to transit through other EU, EEA or EFTA countries to reach your country of residence.

     

    If there’s no deal, the German government has said that you should allow plenty of time when re-entering Germany and make sure that have you have documentation to hand that proves that you are a long-term resident, such as your residence permit, Meldebescheinigung, correspondence concerning social insurance contributions and work or rental contracts.

  9. An Aufhebungsvertrag declares the terms and conditions laid out in a contract of employment to be void unless otherwise agreed upon in the Aufhebungsvertrag. It has to be signed jointly by the employer and employee and basically states that both parties have agreed to the contract being terminated. Employment usually finishes immediately on the day the contract is signed as there  is  no notice period.

     

    Employers like this as the employee has agreed in writing to the contract being terminated, there is no possibility of the said employee suing the company.

     

    If you then apply for financial support from the state, you will be asked why did you sign when you have no other job to go to. You could have refused to sign and continued to get your salary as stated in the notice period in your contract.

     

    Whatever you do, make sure you get a good reference as you have to show it to each prospective employer here for the rest of your working life.   

     

    Read the thread below from Jim Andrews, there is a wealth of information there particularly from Engelchen and Franklan.

  10. I think it is very sad that when two people have an argument or difference of opinion, instead of meeting again face to face and talking things out, the whole issue is posted on the internet and then people take sides and make comments. There seems to be a general lack of respect and understanding when somebody has a different opinion.

  11. Glad to hear that you seem very happy in Ireland.

     

    Have you thought about contacting SOLVIT?

     

    SOLVIT is a service provided by the national administration in each EU country and in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. SOLVIT is free of charge. It is mainly an online service. Although there is a SOLVIT centre in each country, the best way to contact them is via this website.

     

    SOLVIT aims to find solutions within 10 weeks – starting on the day your case is taken on by the SOLVIT centre in the country where the problem occurred.

     

    Unfair rules or decisions and discriminatory red tape can make it hard for you to live, work or do business in another EU country.

     

    So, if you as an EU citizen or business face extra obstacles in another country because a public authority isn't doing what is required under EU law SOLVIT can help.

     

    SOLVIT reminds the authorities in question what your EU rights are and works with them to solve your problem.

  12. When our cat was diagnosed with kidney problems, we were informed that he should only eat special cat food as  normal cat food contained too much protein. Our vet give us a prescription for Royal Canin cat food which the vet had in store. Timmy, our cat didn’t seem to like the taste so we changed to Kattovit. Kattovit didn’t seem to appeal to him either so we changed to Hills cat food. He just sniffed at it and walked away. I must say it smelled different to normal cat food and wasn’t as juicy. We were at our wits end so phoned the vet who told us that a lot of cats refuse to eat the special food as it probably doesn’t taste good without protein.

     

    https://www.hills-eshop.de/prescription-diet/katzenfutter/niere/

     

    We then tried a mixture of 75% special food and 25% normal food, Timmy only ate the normal food. We then tried a mixture of 50/50 and again he only ate the normal food. After consulting our vet again we were told before he starves which should give him his favourite food even though this was poison to his system.

     

    BTW: Drogerie Müller also sells Kattovit.

     

    https://www.mueller.de/search/?q=katzenfutter+kattovit&ms=true

     

    I would advise you to buy  a small number of cat food sachets in case your cat also refuses to eat the stuff.

  13. Our cat was diagnosed with kidney problems and we were told to give him special food. Royal Canin has a special selection of cat food but it is only available from a vet. Kattovit  also has a selection of special cat food which you can buy online.

    We also tried the infusion therapy. Our vet showed us how to give him the infusion so we could do this at home.

     

    https://www.kattovit.com/index.php/niere.html

     

    We were very fortunate to have a vet who did home visits as it is a lot of stress to put a cat in a box and transport it to the vets, but sometimes there is just no other way possible.

     

    When the time came to let him go, we took him into the living room and he was put to sleep on our coffee table, in his own home with us by his side. I hope he thought, oh here we go again, the strange person ( the vet) will give me another injection but my family are here with me. Although it was a very sad occasion, it was quiet, very dignified and he was not frightend at all as he had no idea what was going to happen as he was used to the vet coming and examining him.   

     

    Wishing you and your cat all the best.

  14. 41 minutes ago, Jim Andrews said:


    I have 3 months notice period. I only wrote the day I resigned not the exact end date, only the day that I resigned. 

     

     

    IMO you haven't really resigned as there is no termination date.

    As stated by Wherearewegoingto, the letter of resignation needs to bear a date, the address of your employer and your own address and a termination date and you must sign it.

     

    You have to write when the contract will be terminated. They will see from the date when you wrote the letter and can check if it conforms to your notice period.

     

    Your contract ends on the last pay day, regardless if you work on this day or are on holiday.

     

    This may be the reason why they sent you an Aufhebungsvertrag

    1

  15. Did you read your contract before you resigned?  What notice period do you have?  Did you write in your letter of resignation the exact day when you will leave the company?  

     

    If yes, it is a very strange situation. If not this may be the reason why they sent you an Aufhebungsvertrag. Check and compare all the details as Lenny Nero suggested.

     

    Before you spend money on a lawyer, ask your HR department why they sent you the document.

  16. "Going to parties and everyone sitting at tables"

    Going to parties and having to use the du and the Sie form when sat at the table.

     

    I have lived here so long and still cannot understand why Germans cannot form a queue. It is a real nightmare trying to get served at our local bakery, nobody stands in line and everyone thinks it is their turn when asked.

     

    Lidl also have supermarkets in England. Perhaps you can continue to buy your veggie balls there.

  17. What a terrible thing to happen. I hope you dogs make a speedy recovery.

     

    On another note, you said there was no contract which is strange. How did you pay the bill and did you get a proper receipt ?

     

    Please keep us posted how things are working out for you and your dogs.

  18. How sad this that could happen to someone.

     

    When you hear how people from so called poor countries treat older people with the utmost respect and care for them till the end, it makes you wonder what is going wrong in our world?

     

    Thank you for posting this, you and your colleagues are doing a great job.
