Protection against dismissal for expectant mothers

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Expectant mothers are subject to a prohibition on dismissal. It begins with the notification of pregnancy to the employer.

Expectant mothers are subject to a ban on dismissal. It begins with the notification of her pregnancy to the employer. This means that the ban on dismissal only applies if the employer was aware of the pregnancy at the time of dismissal or is informed of it within two weeks of receiving the notice of dismissal. Exceeding the deadline is harmless if it is due to a reason for which the woman is not responsible and the notification is made without delay. The protection lasts until four months after the birth.

In special cases, the competent authority may approve an employer's application for permission to give notice.

This means: without a notice of approval from the competent authorities, a dismissal is legally invalid in the defined cases.
