Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, August 2020

Due to the Corona pandemic and the associated economic effects, numerous companies were forced to announce short-time work over the past few months.

Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, August 2020

The Corona Warning App, commissioned by the German Federal Government, has been available for download since June 16, 2020. The availability of the app raises numerous employment-law issues.
