- is entitled to vote and
- has been with the company for at least 6 months (or has worked for the company as a home worker.)
How do you calculate the 6-month length of service?
The (last) election day is decisive for the calculation of the 6-month length of service. The 6-month employment must be continuous, i.e. without interruption. Employment times in other companies of the same (group) company are included. Employment periods before the age of 18 are also to be taken into account.
The deadline does not apply if the company has not yet existed for 6 months.
Are temporary workers allowed to be elected as works council?
No, temporary workers cannot be elected in the company to which they were hired. You can, however, be elected to the works council of the temporary employment agency.
Can terminated employees also be elected to the works council?
If a dismissed employee files a dismissal protection suit and the proceedings are still pending on election day, the dismissed employee is eligible for election. If the terminated employee is elected, the office is suspended until the dismissal protection proceedings have been legally concluded.
