(Doctors, architects, equitable remuneration) Many an employer employs graduates in academic professions (doctors, architects, etc.) and pays only a lean intern salary of up to 400 / month. Reported in the press (mirror of the 1.8.2011) is currently by foreign doctors, which do the work of a physician in German hospitals, are hired as interns, and get only 400 / month for their activity. What rights do have interns? Must University graduates accept such low payment? The German labour jurisdiction has developed some guidelines for this purpose. The labour courts consider whether the training ratio in the foreground is, or whether the trainee in the work organization is incorporated. ISearch recognizes the significance of this. Should the trainee in the organisation of work be incorporated and regularly perform the usual activities of a doctor or architect, he must receive appropriate compensation.
The law assumes that a reasonable Remuneration only exists when at least two thirds are paid the customary compensation. In any case, a case of so-called immoral wage usury exists when a working full time doctor or architect receives only about 400 / month salary. The agreement on the amount of compensation is ineffective in the case. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from isearch. The trainee is entitled to the customary remuneration in the case. This 2,200 2,500 / month may be doctors or architects. Should the intern”several months only 400 / month have already received for his qualified full time occupation, must the employer may pay to much. For the future, the trainee can then request the local salary.
Specialist Attorney tip workers: as an intern, have extensive salary and salary claims under certain circumstances. Check, whether the purpose of training in the foreground. If not, then a case of immoral wage usury exists maybe, against the prior court effective can proceed. You should first ask your employer to pay a reasonable salary. Specialist Attorney tip employers: you should reward adequately qualified work. Who employs graduates as interns at low wages, is potentially tortious.

Auer Witte Thiel informed about groundbreaking BGH judgment to health insurance contracts Munich June 2013: health insurance according to 193 para 3 sentence 1 VVG only considered effective cancelled if confirmation of connection insurance has gone to the old insurance company. There is no retroactive validity on receiving notice of insurance. Auer Witte Thiel explains the decision of IV civil Senate of the Federal Supreme Court and the underlying case. In this particular case, a private krankenversicherter customer had concluded a new contract with another provider and with the old provider with approval of new insurance from 01 February to 1 December 2009 moved the commencement first due to delays in the termination. In a second letter dated June 10, 2009 the insured revoked the new contract but complete, whereupon him sued the following insurance on payment of the outstanding premiums.

The defendant went to revision, prompting the Supreme Court dissolved the State Court ruling and again handed the case to the Court of appeal.
