What does it, if the workers because of the strike at work is delayed? Current press releases according to the German air traffic controllers announced a 6-hour nationwide strike for Thursday, the 4.8.2011. Should there be a nationwide strike of air traffic controllers, can be expected, many commuters to come to work late or not or not timely perceive an appointment. Punctuality is the contractual obligation of the employee. Normally, a belated show of the employee entitles the employer to the cease and desist letter, in case of repetition even to the behavioral termination of the employment contract. The workers must ensure that it appears just in time for work.
Therefore, it is always recommended to go with a buffer of time from home. But what if the workers because of a strike comes too late? First of all, the consequences depend on what is laid down in the employment contract. A fixed working time has been agreed, would be a belated appear itself Reasons for which workers can nothing inappropriate behaviour of arbeitsvertragliches and therefore dangerous for the existence of the employment relationship. What is crucial is whether the workers faced with strike-related delays and has taken sufficient steps to arrive at the place of work in spite of the delays expected. Should live, but work in Hamburg or Frankfurt, and commute in the morning with the aircraft, an employee in Berlin workers should already keep an eye out for a good railway connection or take care of a hotel for an overnight stay. Even if the worker was not so carefully and looking ahead: A termination of workers first does not need to worry about. If necessary, a warning may be pronounced so him. But it becomes critical when he generally has a problem with punctuality workers and already several times that was called off.
A delay due to strike can thus become the drop, which brings the barrel to overflowing. One of these Delay-based (termination) may even be effective would then be. Specialist Attorney tip employees: If you are a punctual and reliable employees generally, a strike-related delays can be you not dangerous. If this is what unlikely a warning should collect this can be you a maximum at delays in the future more frequently occurring on the feet. If you have already one or more warnings because Zuspatkommens, I strongly recommend to read the newspapers and to leave the House as soon as possible or leave depending on the final destination on the evening before. Specialist Attorney tip employers: you can terminate even () a notoriously unpunktlichen workers due to a strike-related Zuspatkommens circumstances. It is important that a signature (s) effectively formulated (better more) previous Abmahnung(en). If an otherwise timely and reliable employee due to a Strikes is late, should keep in mind that a good working relationship is perhaps unnecessarily burdened by a cease and desist letter. The employees will again perfectly behave also without warning after the strike. Arbeitsvertragliches measures is sometimes counterproductive, if workers feel unfairly treated.
