- Some employees resign mid-month with a notification period as per contract
- 2 weeks later the employer announces insolvency, termination the contracts of all employees
- The employee contracts which had not resigned were terminated with 'immediate effect'
- The contracts of those who had already resigned where just terminated (without mentioning any period or point in time)
In both cases the wages (and other payments) were not paid.
What is the legal status of the latter? Do they still hold valid contracts? More specific: Are the contractual notice periods still in place and binding or does the insolvency supersede employees contractual rights?
Appreciating any information on this specific constellation, thanks!
