Gohar Kheirandish's son who lives in Germany
Firing people in Germany is not like we see it in the US movies, where one day you arrive at the office, your boss fires you, you pack your things, and walk out of the building with a box filled with your belongings. Once you get a job in Germany and are past the probation period, usually 6 months, it is tough for your employer to fire you. Employers need to have real reasons to let you go. These reasons need to be foolproof as any employee can sue the company for firing them unfairly. And trust me, a company does not want to deal with this type of lawsuit. In case you do get unemployed at some point, you may have access to extensive unemployment benefits in Germany.
