  1. Hello, I am looking for the name of the form that I would need if I would like my friend to become the legal guardian of my child in the event of something happening to me.  Say that I get arrested or get into a car accident, and that I am a single mother, and say that I would like to friend to take care of my child and not Jungendamt. I was told I would need to sign a form that would give legal rights to my friend, however I forgot the name of this form.  Can anyone hep me with this? Regards,  Anita
  2. Hi, my hubby is self-employed (selbtständig), he installs hardwood floors, and he did not receive payment for one project he did for one company (for which he was a sub-contractor). What are his orptions in terms of getting the money? He does have a contract that was signed between him and the company, and he did complete the project according to the requirements.  He has litigation insurancem but from what I know, they do not want to cover the cost of suing the company. I am not sure why,although I will inquire. Can he take the company which refuses to pay him to court and represent himself? Regards,  Anita
  3. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    Thank you all for the replies. Some were more helpful than others, but I appreciate most who took the time to write.  In the end I asked my employer to terminate my contract earlier, withiout the two weeks notice. Because I had been working there for just 1,5 months, I figured that I do not need a letter of reference, and that I would be easily replaced. My employer agreed to my request, and in the end all was well. I did feel bad about it. Even though working there was a bad experience (I had a few issues with my boss), I really did not want to make life difficult for anyone. However, I think I was better off leaving sooner than later.   
  4. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    I am thinking the same thing. However, I have been working there for the last 1,5 months, am not fully trained, and have lots of colleagues who do the exact same thing and are there on a full time basis. I am also PT there (30 hours), and during my last meeting with my boss, she tod me she was not too happy with work. There are also lots of students who work there as well who could cover up for me on short notice, especially during the summer, when there is no school. 
  5. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

      Yes, but i did mention in my post that I do not intend to write myself sick in one place so I can go to the other. I will inform one employer that I refuse to continue working there, and that I will no longer show up, in which case (from what I can rationally guess), the employer is no longer obliged to pay me, but can either fire me on the spot ("refusal to carry out work responsibiities" is a ground for termination on the spot my the empoyer) or can give me the two weeks notice while not paying me for this time. I will not write myself sick because yes, that would be unfair.

    Can you tell if you had any problems?
  7. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    I actually did a bit of research and this is what I found (hope it is right) and this is what I have decided:(To recap, I want to quit my current job of 1,5 months in the banking sector-customer service at the end of the week, which is end of August, and want to start the new job Sept 1, for a grocery store; only problem is that the Kuendigungsfrist for my old position states that I need to give two weeks notice, even in the Probezeit... so for the next two weeks, if I would have to respect the Kuendigungsfrist, I would be employed in two places) -this happens more often than one might think, as sometimes the Kuendigungsfrist can be too long  -the current employer can take me to court over loses, conflict of interest and double payments of social security                        -in order for my current employer to be able to sue me, he would have to prove the loses, which in my case this will probably not be that applicable, as my job is expendable (many of my colleagues are doing the exact same thing as I do)                         -there is no conflict of interest, one job is in the banking sector while the other is in food industry                         -to avoid the double payment of social security, I will inform my current employer that I will no longer show up for work if he does not agree to waive the 2 week Kuendigungsfrist and not give me a  Aufhebungsvertrag. This means I will  NOT write myself sick for these two weeks (while start at the new job), so technically, my current employer will not need to pay me. I will explain to him that this job makes me very unhappy (very true)  and that it is best for me and everyone involved not to come to work anymore. My current employer would probably agree with this anyway.  -there is a risk involved for my current employer to cause problems for me, but considering the very short duration of my current employment, the expendability (is that even a word?) of my position and the respect (or lack thereof) that I received from my current boss (the main reason why i quit), I am willing to take the chance of starting a new position while still employed somewhere ese (if my current employer will not give me that Aufhebungsvertrag). However, it wil be a lesson for me to learn and not do this again in the future  
  8. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    My old/current job is in the credit/banking sector. The new job is for a grocery store. The two are really not related. Moreover, I worked at the old job for 1,5 months, and I had an entry-level position, and I was not the only one doing this job, so I doubt I will be missed. I am definitely expandable there.  I will try to delay the second job for another two weeks, but I might not be able to.  Sure, I could ask for a  Aufhebungsvertrag from my current position, but I need to prepre for the event that I will not get it. 
  9. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    Thank you. I will try both scenarios. 
  10. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    I will give in my two weeks notice and then write myself off as sick (or not). This means that for the next two weeks, I will be registered as working in two places. So what is the worst thing that can happen? 
  11. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    Thank you, but wouldn't just be easier not to come at all anymore (while telling them this)? Can't they fire me on the spot without the two weeks notice ? If I will end up being employed simultaneously at the two jobs for the two weeks, how bad would that be? 
  12. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    And my second question: say that I do give two weeks notice, and not go for the last two weeks to my current job (either write myself as sick or just not show up), but go to my second job. What is the worst thing that could happen to me courtesy of the Finanzamt?
  13. Dear all, 1,5 months ago I became gainfully employed in a position that seemed promising. However, it soom became apparent to me and my boss that we did not share the right chemistry. In the meanwhile I applied to other jobs, and I recently found another job close to my home, which I think would be a better match. However, they want me to start next week, as in right away. I said I would. Now I am reading my current contract, and regarding quitting, it states: "Die ersten sechs Beschäftigungsmonate gelten als Probezeit, in der das Arbeitsverhältnis mit einer Frist von zwei Wochen gekündigt werden kann.". I was under the impression that during Probezeit, one can be fired on the spot, and that one can also quit right away as well.  How can I process here (please, ony constructive criticism)? Should I postpone my new job or should I try to quit on the spot from my current job and hope they will let me go? Even if I would need to qait 2 more weeks, I don't think they will want me around, as if would be too awkward.  I am concerned that I will lose my new job if I do not start as I said I would. Regards,  Anita
  14. Selbststaendig and tax class

    Question everyone,  if you are sebtständig (have your own business), does it matter which Steuerklasse your spouse has? In other words, does it matter if your wife has 4 or 3? Does it make any difference for you? Regards,  Anita
  15. Registering a new car using online services

    Thank you everyone. In the end th car dealer managed to sweeze in an appointment at the right Zulassungstelle and register my car. For 100 euros. A bit expensive, but it saved me of the pain of having to tow the car to a private parking, which would ahve cost just as much.
