Compensation for termination
without cost risk

Most dismissals in Germany are illegal. However, many employers take advantage of their information headstart and power position. They pretend that the dismissal is legal. On the other hand, there are the dismissed employees. They shy away from going to the lawyer, because there is already a fee for the initial consultation due.

High cost risk & Expensive

Even the initial consultation with a lawyer can cost up to 200 euros. There may be additional costs for drafting documents and the more hours spent on the case, the more expensive it will be.


On many lawyers' websites there is nothing about the costs. Besides, you do not know how competent the lawyer is. The chance of success is unknown. The risk that high costs will be incurred is therefore high.

Time consuming

Hiring a lawyer is time consuming and stressful. On-site appointments, many telephone calls and the submission of documents cost time and nerves.

The severance payment will be a one-off payment made by the employer to the employee. It is often paid if the employer cancels the employment contract. It provides compensation for the the loss of the job.

There is no legal entitlement to a Severance pay in labor law. However, there are situations in which which employees can still demand severance pay for, for example, if a severance payment is specified in the employment contract or in the the company's social plan has been agreed. Employers and employees can also be the payment of a severance payment at the end of the employment contract. in a termination agreement or settlement agreement.

Employers often also pay severance pay if the dismissal is ineffective or socially unjustified. Here, the employee can contest the dismissal and file an action for protection against dismissal. Such a process before the labour court is time-consuming and costly for employers. The procedure involves the risk for the employer that the termination of the employment contract is declared invalid and the employee is entitled to subsequent payment of the salary and reinstatement. In most cases, employers will agree to severance pay in order to avoid or quickly terminate an unfair dismissal action.

The amount of the severance payment is also not regulated by law, but depends on the negotiating skills of both parties. Usually, a half or a full gross monthly salary is paid per year of employment.

Your cancellation will first be checked on the basis of your details. If there are any indications of ineffectiveness and lack of social justification, we will confirm the assignment to engage and finance a contract lawyer. The Contract attorney contacts your employer and negotiates a settlement for you. If the employer does not comply, an action for dismissal protection will be filed. As a rule, employers are then persuaded to pay a severance payment. Our promise applies: You only pay something if we have been successful for you and you receive a severance payment.

After receiving the notice of dismissal, you only have a few days to negotiate the severance payment. Therefore, have your notice of dismissal checked immediately.
