Legally sound amendments under German law

If essential conditions of the employment contract (e.g. activity, position, vacation entitlement, remuneration) are to be changed, this can be done in the form of an Amendment agreement.

As the term Amendment agreement suggests, this is a document that requires the consent of both parties. Clear and precise phrasing is crucial in order to avoid unexpected legal disputes and escalations

Important: According to the Nachweisgesetz, all essential working conditions must be communicated to the employee in writing: The twinwin template for an Amendment agreement caters to this.
