Fair Integration advice centres

Fair Integration is a counselling service in Germany for refugees and migrants from third countries (outside the EU) on social and labour law issues. The counselling service is available in all federal states and is provided by various organisations. Counselling is offered free of charge, anonymously and in various languages of origin. Counselling topics include labour and social law issues that are directly related to the employment relationship, such as working hours, dismissal, temporary work and many more.
