Reasons for raising an objection to a wrongful termination
There are certain specific reasons for which it is not permitted to terminate an employment relationship. These include personal characteristics such as nationality, skin color, and age. There is a whole series of further reasons that we have summarized for you in our legal information.
If you have received such a termination, you should send your employer a written objection. In doing so, you must meet two deadlines: The deadline for raising an objection and the deadline for bringing legal action.
You must raise the objection in writing and submit it to your employer by the last day of the employment relationship at the latest. When you do so, make sure to have receipt of the objection confirmed in writing. If you send the objection by registered letter, you must ensure that it is received by the employer by the last day of the employment relationship at the latest. Legal action must be brought within 180 days after termination of the employment relationship at the responsible court.
