  1. Annual leave rules - question

    Thank you! More or less it seems to be clear now.
  2. Annual leave rules - question

    Hi Everybody,   I have a short question regarding annual leave in Germany. In theory, I work for company XXX and take for instance 17 days OFF during the first 6 months and then, my employment ends on 30.06. What happens when I've taken more days than actually being entitled to per month? Does employer have right to deduct the exceeded equivalent from the final pay or...?   Thanks

    Thank you Guys
  4. Travel Insurance in USA

    Hello Everybody,   I'm planning to visit US later this year for approx. two weeks and thinking about travel insurance.  Can someone recommend me some options/companies in Germany? I'm an EU citizen and been here in Germany for over 4 years now (working full-time). Not sure if that matters at all when buying any insurance through German company?    Appreciate all your responses and hints.   Cheers.
  5. Per diem rates / daily expense allowances

    Nice ..as long as your company pays out per diem...in my case, they  just refund food/taxi upon receipts..

    Thank you. All clear then ;-)
  7. Per diem rates / daily expense allowances

    Thanks everybody for a nice replies. The food allowance is clear to me, it is around 40-something € per day (northern UK). No argue on taxi either, as it will be reimbursed against receipts. But what about other expenses like going somewhere for sightseeing over the weekend? I might be spending a few pounds for rail tickes, are they supposed to refund it as well? Bottomline, is hanging out/entertainment still considered incidentals?   I've asked several times, but my HR works pretty lame...
  8. Per diem rates / daily expense allowances

    My company (Berlin based) has sent me to UK for nearly 2 weeks. I was asking HR/payroll for some guidelines regarding expenses & refunds but in vain...can someone shed some light on how it works in Germany? They just told me I need to collect all receipts for food and taxi (hotel,flights and rail was paid upfront). Is there any limit I need to stick to? And what about Taxi , is it considered as incidentals?   Thanks!
  9. Hi!   Just a quick question on Reformationstag 31.10.2018. I have a weird example of my company being registered in Berlin but physically its workplace is already in Brandenburg, i.e. where my team and myself work. Moreover, HQ is located outside Germany and frankly, nobody knows if we have this day OFF or not. I've read that Arbeitsort preveils here and matters the most. But anyway on my job contract there is Berlin's address shown...   Any help please? Thank you all.
