Re: Notice period

Your last month is a month like every other month, they can decide to pay you while they tell you that you do not have to show up, if you are on-call they can decide to not call you anymore etc.. etc.. however if there is a minimum amount of hours or minimum monthly wage in the contract they can only decide to not pay you if you yourself agree to that.

Re: Notice period

I assume your contract stipulates a notice period of one month. Even if you have some form of agreement that is "Arbeit auf Abruf" (can't think of the perfect translation - on-call work?), i.e. you only work whenever there is work, it is not allowed to set your hours essentially to zero and not pay you. Normally, you're entitled to an average of the previous few months for the duration of your notice period - I believe the number of months here isn't normally specified, best to assume it's an average of the past 12 months. However, you do need to specifically - and as usual best in writing- offer to continue to work. Even if they don't leverage that, the offer is sufficient to entitle you to a salary.

No no i have normal contract 100%, but I am paid by hours and it contract there is only maximum hours. And they said that they have no work so they will no need me and dont pay me.
