Most managerial decisions involve labour law issues. And that German idiosyncrasy,
co-determination, certainly has its pitfalls. If the negotiating parties
are unwilling to compromise, long and costly legal procedures can ensue.
My strength is moderating between the conflicting interests of employers,
employees, managers and workscouncils. I will involve all stakeholders in
finding a solution. That solution will take all interests into consideration,
but it will still be in keeping with both business and legal requirements.
I utilise my legal know-how to help avoiding law suits. I am firmly positioned
on the employers' side, but I integrate all concerned parties into the solution,
including their knowledge and their agendas. Even in negatively charged situations
involving redundancies and restructuring I will help implementing corporate
objectives in close cooperation with representatives from both the employer
and the employee side.
I have a number of references confirming this given to me from both workscouncils
and senior managers.
