Last Wednesday the newly formed coalition of Liberals, Greens, and Social Democrats, who will lead Germany during the next four years, presented their coalition agreement. In negotiations lasting a little over four weeks, the parties discussed a new direction for the nation.

In their election programmes, the parties already had many ideas concerning German labour law. With the coalition agreement, the new prospective government has now set the direction for the next four years and given us an insight into its plans for labour law.
