Termination/dismissal in temporary work: what you need to know!

Notice periods for terminations, even in temporary work, must be adhered to. Notice periods can be taken from the German Civil Code, from collective agreements and from the employment contract. Notice periods during the probationary period (usually 6 months in temporary work) are often very short. If your assignment at a company ends and you are not assigned a new job, this does not mean that you can automatically be dismissed. However, temporary workers are often dismissed due to a lack of work.

Please note: not all dismissals are justified. Your Fair Integration advice centre can check this and inform you about your rights and options.
