  1. I've read a few posts that during probation employer does not need a strong reason to fire. I thought nonetheless asking this question as things happened to me feels seriously wrong and should not be happening to someone else.    I was hired to a large company in a manager role. Leading figures of the company was so pleased with international experience, range of tasks I did earlier, and the fact that I constantly improve myself. Easy onboarding process and was pleasant experience during taking up contract.   However things got weird in no time: - 2 weeks no real responsibility, despite asking several times. - 3. week I had the onboarding talk with my boss who normally sits elsewhere. When I asked, any performance metrics, reviews, he was cool about it and told me after 3rd month he will check in with my supervisor if something needs improvement.    -  1 week later boss of my boss scheduled a sudden review session, summoned 2 people in my department, one of 2 is supervisor who barely know me or see me doing any task yet. It was absolute HORROR, I heard so much critics starting from my age to experience. Things basically were already on my CV, this was particularly hard as I was totally new, speaking little german, and moved to a different city with my wife who left her job for me.  - Somehow I managed to put this behind and start focusing on work, putting things together that were all over the place.  - then another 2 review sessions within weeks, all without a specific reason why we do these, and how they should help and despite asking my boss, and others, nobody could change anything - you know how Germans will never go against their bosses. My boss could not do nothing and when I spoke to HR, asking advice what is happening she simply transmitted whole conversation to this leading figure. So much for confidentiality.    I finally asked myself how long they want to carry on doing this and when I can feel myself part of the team or receive feedback in a specific, measurable manner so we can actually check my performance.   They said that there is no hidden agenda this reviews normal (no one had this many without reasons and at the request of big man nobody can say nothing against)  Basically this guy made me a side project that was failing miserably because he had no idea what he is doing and or he simply did not care.    I was still working and could not really care this nonsense but then I was summoned and said that they will let me go. I am still waiting something in writing but the whole ordeal is pure nonsense. You should not hire and fire someone.    To my question, given all of this happening within 3 months of my starting (another 2 months notice period will continue). My wife left her job, we have to now leave Germany for good and so much more trouble. This guy should not be allowed to play silly games and ruin people's career and personal life. Is there a legal action you would recommend in this case or probation period no reason required rule still apply ?   
  2. Cost of Arbeitsrecht lawyer?

    Hi all,   Just wondering if anybody knows or has experience with Arbeitsrecht lawyers, and how much it costs for a rather "general" consultation. I would just like to send some questions their way regarding my employment status, rentenversicherung, and if my case is being handled fairly by my work (which I believe is not).   All in all, I would be more or less just asking them for a professional opinion, and not actually requiring them to do a mountain of work.   I have read online that this could be around 200€, is this trues, even if my questions could most likely be dealt with completely through a few emails?   Thanks!
