EURES Germany launches web page for seasonal workers

Are you an EU citizen or third-country national looking for a seasonal job in Germany? EURES Germany recently launched a new landing page to help answer your most important questions.

EURES Germany launches web page for seasonal workers

Who is this page for?

The landing page is created for EU citizens and third-country nationals who are interested in seasonal work in Germany. On this page, they can find practical information about their rights and other important topics, such as working hours, contract conditions, accommodation and social security. The page aims to answer seasonal workers’ most frequently asked questions before they move to Germany.

Why is it important for seasonal workers to know their rights?

Seasonal workers in Germany are subject to German labour law, regardless of their country of origin. When people are aware of their rights, they are less likely to become victims of illegal employment.

What info can be found on this page?

The page is available in English and German, and covers a wide range of topics, such as:

  • work permits;
  • wages;
  • national insurance and health insurance;
  • paid leave;
  • signing and terminating employment contracts.

The page also includes leaflets with more detailed information about seasonal workers from third countries (in English, Georgian and German), and from the EU (in Bulgarian, English, German, Polish and Romanian).

Check out EURES Germany’s landing page for seasonal workers. You can also learn more about living and working in Germany.
