The work council is elected by the employees of a company to represent their interests. The Works Constitution Act (Betriebsverfassungsgesetz) describes the role of the work council in detail. In this act, it is defined in which case the work council can or has to contribute or take part in decision-making.
Moreover, all members of the work council are open for discussions and questions and will offer their help for solving problems of their colleagues, even though items/topics are not directly related to the field covered by the Works Constitution Act. Discussions and inquiries are kept strictly confidential. This confidential handling of all information is of key importance for all work council members.
