The 5th Senate of the Federal Labour Court (BAG) has rejected the appeal of law that was brought following the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in the TimePartner case.

In the case at hand, the BAG ruled that even in the case of fixed-term employment relationships, overall protection is sufficiently granted by the fact that the employee is in principle entitled to continued payment of wages during periods when she is not on loan.

A detailed discussion of the court's reasoning and an evaluation of the decision will be prepared by the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) as soon as the written reasons for the decision are available.
