| News

in Germany

When taking up gainful employment in Germany, the question of social protection always arises. According to the international social security law, the principle of "pay where you work" applies. However, this does not necessarily mean that there is always an insurance cover in all social insurance branches. It needs to be carefully verified on a case-by-case basis under the German domestic law whether or not the professional activity results in a compulsory coverage. The aim of the speech is to familiarize HR professionals with the main features of the social insurance law.
