Kundigungsfrist for Stundelohn [notice period for hourly] contract?

Hi...I am looking for a information in case that someone knows or it had the same situation as I do.
I do work in McDonald's in Stundelohn contract and yesterday 28.7.I did quit and I have Kundigungsfrist 1 month by this contract,so that means I should work untill end of August.
On the beginning of the year I did already took my holidays 10-22.8 and free days week after untill 31.8. and they approved me already and I am free in that august plan..
So,does that mean that I should work just until 10.8. or they will force me to work really untill end of august?
It a bit complicated because its Stundelohn and I want to go prepared before I ask them.
Please give me some tips...

You should work until the end of August.. still taking your holiday days of course, but you should go back to work after your holiday. Of course, you can ask your employer if they would let you finish early and not return after your holidays, but they don't have to agree.

How to get back after my holidays when that's the 31.8. and the last day of the Kundigungsfrist time,or all the days that I've been to holidays I should work after ,even though sometimes happens that they dont call me or week long to work or just 2-3hours per week?

Re: Kundigungsfrist for Stundelohn [notice period for hourly] contract?

If I understand you correctly, the shift plan for August was already settled before you resigned. In it, you have been assigned shifts up until the 9th August only.
From 10th to 22nd August you are not assigned shifts because you are on vacation (already approved long ago).
And from 23rd August to 31st August… are all those days “free”, meaning you have not been allocated any shifts on those days?

If I’ve understood that correctly, then at least in August, your employer is not expecting you to be at work after the 10th.

It is common, when earning an hourly wage (Stundenlohn), that your “holiday pay” is paid to you as a small percentage, together with each hour’s wage. That usually means that staff on Stundenlohn don’t get paid any separate, additional holiday pay. This should be specified in your contract. Typically means that you get your wage (and the small holiday pay supplement) for each hour you work, and you get no money when you are not at work.

If that is the way your contract works, neither you nor your employer will lose any money if you work until the 9th, and then don’t come back to work. However, yes, please be very careful to speak to your boss. After all, he or she will already be working on the September plan. I expect that you and your boss can simply sign a short one-sentence paper agreeing that your last working day is 9th August. Whatever you arrange, please make sure to get it in writing, signed by both.

And please do write, here, what happened. Thanks.
