Dear Customer,


thank you for using Just Answer.

May I ask:


What does the Befristung in your employment contract look like.




Customer: replied 4 years ago.

what is a Befristung? and where can i find it?

Expert:  Claudia Schiessl replied 4 years ago.
Dear Customer,

I am so sorry

Befristung is the fact that your contract ends after 2 years.

It has to meet certain requirements , that is why I am asking how it is written in your contract
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

what is it that you exactly require i have the contract in front of me?

Expert:  Claudia Schiessl replied 4 years ago.
Dear Customer,



what does it say at the beginning

What does it say about the duration of the contract
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

its says you are hired as an exempt (AT) employee specifically as


A GSM


From 17.10.2011 to 16.10.2013

Expert:  Claudia Schiessl replied 4 years ago.
Dear Customer,

if the contract is terminated for 2 years there does not have to be a reason for this

One more question:

Did you work for that company before ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no never before

Expert:  Claudia Schiessl replied 4 years ago.
Dear Customer,


I am very sorry


But the termination of your contract is valid

Even your pregnancy does not hinder the termination of your contract

You are allowed to terminate the contract without a reason for two years
