Changing Work Contract to 'Aushilfe', Will Each Month's Work Still Contribute to Unemployment Benefit?
NeukoellnTyke posted a topic in Life in BerlinHi everyone, Was hoping someone might be able to help me out with what is for me a bit of a confusing situation! I currently work in service at a cafe with a befristet but Festangestellte contract, which is due to expire at the end of April. As I've recently started looking for a new, more skilled job, I informed my bosses that I did not want to take on a permanent contract as I've decided I want to move on to other opportunities. Therefore we opted for me staying on with them after April as an Aushilfe, giving me time to find work and them time to find and train someone to replace me. Though nothing has been signed yet. They want me to stay until they've found and trained someone and in return have told me they won't get rid of me until I've found something else too. I'm concerned this might have been a mistake, as I won't be paid for holidays if we have to close due to corona virus post April and also because I'm hoping that at some point in the future I might receive an education voucher (Bildungsgutschein) from the Jobcentre. However, I haven't yet worked a year in Germany and am thus currently ineligible. I'd like to ask first and foremost if anyone knows whether work performed while employed as an 'Aushilfe' counts as the kind of work that contributes towards these small payments to the Jobcentre that eventually allow you to claim unemployment benefit? And secondly, more of a subjective query, what people might think about the appropriateness of after announcing I wouldn't like to take on the permanent contract, to change my mind and request to work with a permanent contract that I would then resign from when I've found something? Many thanks in advance!
Hallo all, I from New Zealand living in Berlin. I have been receiving ALG1 from the Arbeitsagentur for the last few months, and for this time have been requesting a Bildungsgutschein from the Arbeitsagentur in order to begin a 2 year Umschulung. They have just told me that they are prepared to give me the bildungsgutschein except for one reason: My Aufenthaltstitel is not for Bildung (I have a Erwerbstätigkeit gestättet Aufenthaltstitel that is not linked to a specific job). I will fulfil all the requirements for a Bildung visa as soon as I get the contract from the Umschulung school (who are happy to accept me), but I can only get the contract from them once I present the bildungsgutschein. And the Arbeitsagentur don’t want to give me the bildungsgutschein „on the promise“ of me receiving the right Aufenthaltstitel once I have it. has anyone faced this situation? Or received a bildungsgutschein prior to applying for the Bildung Aufenthaltstitel? I find it hard to believe that no non-EU people ever receive a bildungsgutschein before getting a Bildung visa, because there’s no other way to get a Bildung visa for the type of course that required a Gutschein. any advice is appreciated.
