The Constitutional Court brings more clarity on the fate of the notice period agreements
Since the introduction of the unified employment status between blue-collar and white-collar workers, there is indistinctness about the applicability of the notice period agreements for 'higher' and 'highest' white-collar workers that were concluded before 1 January 2014. The doctrine and case law have so far taken different standpoints and did not offer a clear and uniform standpoint. However, the Constitutional Court has now set a clear direction in an important judgment of 18 October 2018.
