Austrian employment law training

Who should attend

This Austrian employment law training course is relevant to international HR managers and directors who have responsibility for employees in Austria. It will also be useful to managers and directors who anticipate entering the Austrian market and who will need to be aware of their responsibilities of their people.


Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
