By Björn Gercke,Oliver Kraft,Marcus Richter

Arbeitshilfe in der Schnittmenge von Arbeitsrecht und Strafrecht
Das Arbeitsstrafrecht ist für Juristen wegen des Zusammenspiels von Strafrecht und Arbeitsrecht besonders schwierig: In der Praxis fehlt es dem strafrechtlichen Sachbearbeiter oftmals an den benötigten Kenntnissen des Arbeitsrechts, die für ein Verständnis der Strafnorm regelmäßig unabdingbar sind. Dem arbeitsrechtlichen Sachbearbeiter wiederum fehlt es in aller Regel an vertieften strafrechtlichen Kenntnissen, insbesondere im Hinblick auf (straf-)prozessuale Besonderheiten. Die Tatsache, dass die zahlreichen im Arbeitsstrafrecht relevanten Normen in vielen verschiedenen Gesetzen und Verordnungen „versteckt“ sind, erschwert die Arbeit noch zusätzlich.

Diese grundlegend überarbeitete Neuauflage ist deshalb eine wertvolle Arbeitshilfe in der Schnittstelle von Arbeitsrecht und Strafrecht. Strikt an der Beraterpraxis orientiert umfasst das Werk u.a.:

·Konzentration auf die wichtigsten arbeitsstrafrechtlichen Vorschriften
·Abdruck aller wichtigen Normtexte
·Konkrete Hilfen für die Fallbearbeitung
·Außerstrafrechtliche Konsequenzen
·Corporate Compliance
·Exkurs zum Arbeitnehmerdatenschutz
