The new general equal-treatment law (AGG) brings about quite a lot of substantial changes for all companies and administrative bodies. Depending on company size and number of plants all companies have to designate one or more officers in charge of complaints. In order to be prepared for these tasks a profound knowledge of the regulations of the new law as well as of other legal standards is necessary.
Employees may turn to these complaint officers, if they feel discriminated against by their employer, by superiors, colleagues or a third party in any of the areas mentioned in the new law. Then the content of the complaint must be correctly examined, carefully documented and duly processed in accordance with constitutional principles.
