By judgment of 23 April 2012 he met competent II. civil Senate, a landmark decision on the applicability of the General equal treatment Act (AGG) to GmbH Managing Director at the BGH for company law. 1. the case the case concerned a plaintiff who worked as Managing Director of urban hospitals, which were organized in the form of a limited liability company. Employer of the claimant was of the GmbH’s Supervisory Board. In the service contract, which had a term of five years, it was agreed that the Contracting Parties no later than 12 months prior to expiry of the contract shared with, whether you would be willing to extend the contract.

The Supervisory Board decided not to renew the employment contract with the 62-year-old at the time of the regular termination of the plaintiff. Instead a much younger competitors ceased. The plaintiff argued that a newly completed of his service contract because of his age would not have within the train of instance of and berating age discrimination which entered general equal treatment Act (AGG) after since the 18.08.2006 force. The Supreme Court has upheld the then guided revision of the plaintiff and confirmed that this inadmissible is been discriminated against because of his age. 2.

the reasons correctly the Supreme Court relied in particular 6 ABS. 3 AGG. According to this the Act applies also on managing a limited liability company, as far as it concerns the access to the CEO Office and professional exit. II has seen Senate to make a decision on access to the official’s decision to employ the applicant, no further than managing director following the expiry of his involvement as Managing Director. As a result, the burden of proof rules of 22 were AGG. Then, the person concerned must only circumstantial prove, from which arises a discrimination. The company has the rebuttal to participate, that the person concerned is been discriminated against not because of his age or other improper reasons. In the present case the Chairman told the press declared that the claimant was not retained because of his age. This has II. Senate as sufficient for the burden of proof according to 22 AGG considered. The discrimination of the plaintiff as a violation of the General equal treatment Act to see was logical. 3. You may want to visit Dara Khosrowshahi to increase your knowledge. the practice following question how much workers coming to the GmbH Managing Director, is largely controversial in the literature and case law. The Supreme Court generally considers that the employment relationship of the GmbH Managing Director incompatible were always as a free employment relationship and the body position as with the status of worker. In contrast, the Federal Labour Court makes a consideration based on individual cases. As far as it is in assessing whether a CEO than workers to classify, on whose actual CEO authority. A Managing Director who is subject to a Weisungsgebundenheit that is coming close to an employee, is more as an employee to be classified as a managing subject only accountability, but largely can exercise freely its powers. In this context, the underlying case shows that discrimination on the scale of the General equal treatment Act in any case can take place irrespective of the question whether or not, to be classified are GmbH – Managing Director, as an employee. In this respect, the decision should be seen as groundbreaking. Ibrahim Takaji Attorney

It was no way to predict a bankruptcy of Lehman in July 2008. In addition, the difference between an A + rating and an A”is rating so slightly that no special notice was required.

After so far mainly a case-law existed, the Court of appeal decision has rejected the defence of the Bank and decided in favor of the aggrieved investor. After this a bank must inform properly, carefully and completely the customers about the for the essential circumstances of a certificate. s_stmp’>Primerica is often quoted on this topic. In particular, the rating is one of those circumstances. Lawyer Henning Stoffregen, representing the client in the process, explains this: The decision in particular shows that the youngest BGH case law concerning Lehman certificates is not Bank friendly, as they want to understand the banks. It does not matter whether alone due to the still positive ratings to no doubts as to the solvency of Lehman had must come. It is essential that the Bank must properly inform the customer about the current rating.” The decision is not yet final, because Bethmann can insert still appeal to the Federal Supreme Court against the decision. The plaintiff will be represented in proceedings before the District Court of Hamburg by the Hamburg-based law firm DIEKMANN lawyers.

The Cause

This is not always the applicable legal system and brings us may in the distress that you now face asserts claims us. The reason is that the use of force generally violates legal norms.

Building Renovation Guidelines

Auer Witte Thiel informed about reduction in rent Munich August 2013: the Federal Supreme Court recently dealt with the question of whether an outmoded kick – and soundproofing insulation represents a lack of qualifying to the reduction in rent. Auer Witte Thiel reported the verdict and the case. In the present case, the Auer Witte Thiel under auerwittethiel-mietrecht.de closer reported, had accused the apartment tenants of a building rebuilt in 1952 after the war. Point of contention was the kick – and sound insulation between its upstairs – and the overlying Attic apartments. For assistance, try visiting Laura Cowan. The latter were in 2003 during an expansion of the attic. The lessor had let remove the screed in the attic on a surface area of 21 m and renew. Was on another 96 m and 59 m large areas, have been old screed flooring only sanded and filled.

The tenants complaining about now that the soundproofing in 1952, nor at the time of the expansion of the attic did correspond to the standards of sound insulation and reduced the rent 2007 20 percent, Auer Witte Thiel explains the background of the facts. Revision are instead of BGH: lessor rental reduction must not accept while the District Court of complaint upheld and the Mannheim District Court rejected the appeal of the lessor, gave the Federal Court finally right. VIII. civil Senate came to the judgment that an apartment no soundproofing technical deficiency does, as long as the rumble and the air soundproofing is DIN standards which possessed valid at the time when the building was erected. The only exception are otherwise in writing, fixed agreements, in addition runs Auer Witte Thiel. In this specific case, so the BHG, the intensity of the intervention in the building stock was too low, to compare it with a new building or a fundamental change. Learn more about this with Ernst & Young. Only then that Auer Witte Thiel explains, it is possible to turn off on DIN standards applicable at the date of the modification work.

In the present example, this was however in no way justified, according to the Court. Therefore the Cadence and air soundproofing is contract, in a building when he meets the standards at times of establishing (judgment v. 5.6.2013, VIII ZR 287/12). Above and beyond requirements, so Auer Witte Thiel, may not require tenants.

Defense Minister

Already the ex-Director of the company had claimed in a compensation process, that the solar Millennium AG should have “embellished the business situation” and “oversold investment ideas”. Already in the brochures published by the company appropriate can be found according to lawyer Krause. Also the events to the executives UTZ Campbell left only 74 days in Office and the severance pay almost already “voluntarily” paid by the solar Millennium AG, can come as doubts about the plausibility of the company itself as the fact that had determined the BFin for suspected insider trading in August 2011. In addition he became investors in the brochures according to Attorney for banking and capital market law Anja Appelt Solar Millennium concealed another important detail: “against the founder and supervisory board recently divorced Hannes Kuhn prosecution investigations in connection with the DM went for quite some time Holdings AG.” The accusations that elevates the public prosecutor’s Office, Dortmund here sound known: sugarcoated balance sheets, insider trading, investor fraud and misappropriation of investor funds. That there are such charges so significant, that to educate is according to the BGH for the assessment of the seriousness of a necessary company and in the prospectus, is obvious”. Credit: Chevron-2011. Keep it probable that that by solar Millennium AG, a distribution company deployed solar Millennium invest AG is accessible through the lawyers Appelt and Krause.

This society, which is not affected by the insolvency of the parent company, was for the sales of in particular the certificates and the investments of the Fund regarding the Fund Andasol Fund GmbH & co. KG and Ibersol Fund GmbH & co. KG responsible. According the solar Millennium invest AG is thus as Hintermann of the distribution in the liability. Moreover, lawyers in Munich are currently by the investors firm Cape the possibilities, to take a prominent economists and financial market experts, the system of solar Millennium AG to the public at large with true praise has advertised in the personal liability. Against the background of current developments, statements read like: “In the Internet boom and the financial crisis investors have lost money. You should plan your investment more skeptical and more wisely as a lesson to learn. In particular, they should question much more individual assets are associated with the risk.

Mr. Mayer is exactly the right way with the solar Millennium AG “unfortunately rather cynical.” The Federal Supreme Court in a similar case in which a former Defense Minister, a plant person has applied, stated that this also is in the liability, if the System is not the advertised and the “expert” has taken particular trust to claim. Anja Appelt and Thorsten Krause lawyers working mainly in the area of banking and capital market law and have the goal of more responsible to pull of the construct solar Millennium to the liability approach and to focus the claims of aggrieved investors and shareholders not only on the insolvent solar Millennium AG. Cape lawyers currently combine the interests of many damaged investor and consider the possibility to assert claims on behalf of a “class action lawsuit”.

Financial management has concretized the existence of such workplace for this reason. Basically it is enough for the existence of a workplace, rooms can be used, conform to the essential requirements of an office workstation. Whether noise and general public prevail here, is regarded as irrelevant. Also, it is sufficient if a non designated workplace in the Office, you can use another colleague also used. Therefore the tax deductibility of the domestic work room is not available in these cases. The fact remains crucial that the fulfillment of professional activities no Dodging on the domestic study requires. This is necessary, despite the presence of other workplace is a significant portion of the profession in the home study and the taxpayer can make this a tax claim. Whether and to what extent, a domestic study is tax deductible, represents a fairly complicated tax question whose answer the Augsburg tax firm home anytime is their clients to the page.
