So the DFK in a statement. It is regrettable that the really big projects be addressed neither in the important areas of taxes, education, pensions, health at the social or labour law”, so Bernhard von Rothkirch, Chairman of the Association of professional executives – DFK. Especially in the field of work and Social Affairs would be much to do. “We need progress on legislation that not go ahead for years, for example to the employees data protection or the whistleblowing at last. “Here, the uncertainty is great for years and clarity of the urgently needed.” New developments in a globalised world of work are becoming increasingly affect the German employment law.
Cloud workers, cross-border telecommuting or working in international structures and conditions need a new legal framework. The Treaty silent themselves, however. Efforts to deal with workforce in the higher age, seeks to support the Coalition, calls but no action. Even with more flexible transitions from work to retirement, it remains at an abstract statement of intent. The issues addressed rather as backup of stock rather than brave future decisions. Unfortunately, outweigh the inspection orders or to stay with blanket statements,”said von Rothkirch.
The same applies to the pensions reforms. By Rothkirch: Here would do much to adhere to occupational pensions sustainable and attractive. Here, it is only checked where there are potential barriers to small and medium-sized enterprises and how they can be mined. One looks in vain. measures that encourage, for example, the mobility of pensions or take account of the level of interest rates ” Addressed more individual Lighthouse measures than to see the big picture: the Removal of cold progression as well as the strengthening of the role of the Federal Government in education policy are not even mentioned in the coalition agreement. One can only hope that the Coalition developed may have the look for topics of the future, we already would have liked. Otherwise blockade and political paralysis threatens in key policy areas,”said von Rothkirch.
