Help Regarding Kurzarbeitergeld and Non payment of wages.
I am Joseph. Foreign student at University of Potsdam. I have a mini job as student assistant. And also a part time job at a Hotel. I have been working in the hotel at reception and bar for more than 5 months now. I was offered a Job contract for 96 hours/Month at Hotel starting from 8th January 2020. Due to coronavirus the Hotel was closed mid march and reopened on May 2020. I read about Kurzarbeitergeld and asked my employer if I was eligible and included for it. But he refused the claim mentioning I am a student and hence not eligible for Kurzarbeitergeld. Since, I have a 96hours/Month contract. I contacted Councelling services in Berlin (Fair Mobilität) and got to know that I was eleigible for it. But my emolyer didn't register me for it. And also I found out about my rights for full payment from the mentioned Working Hours i.e 96h/month in the contract,which was being denied by my employer. I contacted my employer and also sent zahlungsaufforderung. But the Claim for my wages was denied by my employer. I also contacted my Health insurance and got the information that my employer has not been paying the insurance according to the contract. Also my employer registered me as a Mini job despite giving me a contract for 96h/month. Because of this my tax class in Mini job ( Max planck) Changed to 6th.
Since, asking for zahlungsaufforderung my employer has been trying to terminate me. They have also removed the old contract and propsed me a new contract with reduced working hours of 24h/month. And I am afraid I will have a termination if I don't sign the new contract.
Kindly help me. I read about approaching Labour court. But I need some guidance with finding a lawyer and also since my income is not high, apply for Beratungsschein. If that is possible. Any help would be highly appreciated.
