Full Time Work Contract Termination

8 posts in this topic

Hello all, 

 

I was hoping to get some information about some of the issues I have lately encountered at work. 

 

I work as a full-time employee with a firm in Frankfurt, and I was recently told that "it would be best if I find another job". 

 

To give you a bit of context in to how I have been performing, I am the only person in my team (it should be 3 people minimum at any time) for the last 4 months, I have on my own delivered higher revenue even that what they made during Q4 2019, which had Black Friday, Christmas etc. There is an online record of all these things, and can be proved. I did not put any of the projects on hold owing to low capacity, instead even took up new ones and delivered. Nothing comes to my mind that should have upset my employee, no project messed up, no campaign missed, no revenue targets that were not achieved. 

 

There is a lot of political bullshit going on in the office, and I never indulged in it. I think, after a year they owe me a pay raise, and they just did not want to offer a promotion or a pay raise, instead want to replace me with an intern. 

 

Anyhow, I have received this news without a written explanation as to what the reasons are, and I don't believe it to be fair. 

 

I want to know what I can do, I definitely do not want to stay here and work any longer, but can I sue them? Since I have not breached anything in my contract, and have delivered more than one person can.

Sue them on what grounds? Has your employer done something illegal that you have failed to mention? 

 

Treating employees unfairly is not in and of itself illegal.

Only fight those battles you can win. This one will most probably be a waste of time, money and energy. Have that T-shirt of yours. I left one joint and they gave my work to five different people. Yes, five. They hate you when you outshine them because they feel so inadequate. You don't fit in. It's their loss. Good people can move on. Good luck. Life is too short for this kind of shit.

@optimista I agree with you. I started applying for new positions on the 16th, and have already landed a few interviews. Since this has become a culture within the company, I was hoping if there is a way of getting back to them, but well if it really is that time consuming, then I guess why waste my time. 

 

@engelchen Based on what I read here and there, the employer needs to have a valid reason to end the contract. And since in this case they have none, at least not any that I am aware of.

Have they terminated your contract?

That doesn't sound like an official termination. 

 

I'm not excusing your employer's behaviour, just pointing out that you have yet to mention a legal reason to sue them.

Honestly, I don't know about that either. That is why I was hoping to get from this forum.

They do; it's just not valid to you.

If they only told you to look for another job, they want you to save them all the work and hassle of terminating your contract. You can only sue them if they ignore the notice period or the reason for the termination is not correct, so you need a written document.

 

Does your company have a workers representative?
