What are false references in your “Zeugnis“?

The reference certificate must absolutely give true information and do not lie about the matter of the facts. In the event of damage for false claims, the issuer must be charged.


The newly hired employee can not properly use a machine even though it is written in the so-called in Germany: “Zeugnis”. The operating error causes damages. The former employer must be liable for this damage.

As employers, give neither too benevolent nor too negative credentials. It could lead to really unpleasant situations.

Missed Reference Certificate

If the employee is somehow damaged because he/she receives his certificate too late, the employer is obliged to pay damages.
