If the conditions are right, the job centre supports migrants who would like to take advantage of professional coaching. The job centre then provides a so-called “activation and placement voucher” and covers the costs for the “Migration and the labour market” coaching, for example.

The personnel department or the works council will know the exact rules. In principle, however, leave is no longer automatically forfeited. This has been decided by the European… Read More
