But it has already been that way
Seems, that our company is going to include some passages into our work contracts, which in my opinion are already given by law in the collective contracts for IT professionals.
But until now, if asked, the HR department everytime replied with something like "this doesn't apply to us because this and that". Well, if I understand the collective contract correctly (and it isn't that hard to read), everything applies to us OF COURSE! But in the past I wasn't that unhappy with their denial, that I had to insist in my rights.
If everything is now written down one more, I have no problem with it that our HR can't say "no" anymore :)
