You have trouble with the authorities? The office has rejected your application? In the broadest sense, administrative law covers every action, every notice, every measure in which the state is involved in the form of offices and authorities. We advise you on all aspects of administrative law, such as registration, immission control and aliens law, but also in the areas of monument protection law and tax law.
The area of aliens law primarily concerns advice on obtaining residence permits, avoiding deportations and, for example, enabling family reunification.
If you have a concern regarding the remodeling of a listed building, or if you want to defend yourself against conditions imposed by the monument authorities, you are just as welcome here as in the problem area of municipal charges, in particular the law on development contributions, i.e. when it comes to the question of how you can defend yourself against a new or an increase in an existing financial charge on your property.
But you are also welcome to contact us in questions of environmental and municipal law.
The main focus of our legal work in these areas of law is advising and representing civil servants, public employees and staff councils in court.
Areas of advice include the drafting of employment contracts, collective bargaining law (formerly BAT, today TVöD) or the rights and duties of staff representatives.
We also offer advice on issues relating to the privatization of public institutions.
However, you are also welcome to contact us in the event of a transfer or secondment, or if you have any concerns regarding promotion or appraisals. Last but not least, you are also welcome to contact us with questions about invalidity, the reclaiming of pay or the termination of civil service or employment.
The secondment of a civil servant is the temporary transfer of an activity corresponding to the previous office to another department while retaining the assignment to the previous position under service law. In this respect, it differs from a transfer. A secondment is permissible if it is in the interest of the service. Secondment to a subordinate activity is also permissible without the official’s consent for a period of up to 2 years, which often leads to disputes in practice.
The transfer of a civil servant is the permanent assignment of a new office. It is permissible without the consent of the civil servant only within the service area of his or her employer.
The transfer of an employee is the assignment of a different activity in terms of location, scope or nature. As a rule, it is only permissible unilaterally by virtue of the employer’s right of direction if the employee has not been hired for a precisely defined activity. The works/staff council has a right of co-determination.
