You signed a contract where you agree to not have pets and the landlord agreed to let you live there. If you decide to not follow your end of the deal, the landlord might not either. In simple terms, you can get evicted. There is probably a clause in the contract to the effect of "you will get evicted if you don't follow these rules". Depending on contract ...

Given that they told me I would get back pay and I worked conditional on that information, am I entitled to it? You are entitled to backpay in accordance with the terms you accepted from HR. The employer's refusal to pay you from October 1st is in violation of Austria's Allgemeines bürgerliches Gesetzbuch at § 860a. At this point you have fully complied ...

The legal repercussion is that you could be evicted for breach of contract. The courts would not order you to give away the cat. What you should do, rather than waiting for this to melt down to a court case where you would not like the outcome, is instead to negotiate an accommodation with the landlord. You want something, so don't expect to get it for free. ...

Depending on the bridge, you might be trespassing in some way. Railway bridges are the property of the railway company, they don't allow to go there unless specifically allowed and even the absence of a sign is not an ok in those cases. Similarly, highway bridges usually are communal property and they don't need to be marked as off limits if there are laws ...

what taxes or fees does he need to pay? According to this glimpse of Austrian tax law, Franz would still have to pay income tax on any non-monetary compensation he gets from the company. See section of "Vermietung und Verpachtung [...]". Non-monetary compensation is typically known as benefits. The term serves to distinguish that compensation from (1) any ...

At least in Austria and Germany, banning cats in rented apartments is quite a complex issue. See here. Generally banning them seems not to be possible, as they usually don't bother other tenants and you can easily restore your apartment when leaving, should the cat damage it. possible repercussions? Well, don't expect any goodwill on other matters from ...

Go to the Arbeiterkammer. It's a institution designed to help employees on such matters. Call them at Tel. +43 1 501 65 1341 (Mon-Fri 8am-2pm) to arrange an appointment. You may need to speak German or find someone to help you who speaks German. More info here: https://wien.arbeiterkammer.at/ueberuns/kontakt/index.html

This is the cited article. Thankfully, the interviewee provided a scan of the police letter he received, so the rest of this question is relatively easy to answer. He was specifically charged with Störung der öffentlichen Ordnung (lit. Disturbance of the public order) persuant to § 81(1) of the Sicherheitspolizeigesetz, which reads (after putting ...

Firstly, yours is not a valid argument. What is meant by "generally accessible" is public places like plazas, stretches of green by the road, parks, parking lots, etc. The definition is kind of a negative and could be more easily phrased as: "You may camp at A) designated camping areas or B) private places where you are entitled to camp". This means you ...

If a landlord does not fulfill their duties to keep the rented property in a usable state, then according to this source, the tennant has the right to reduce the rent by a certain percentage while the fault persists ("Mietminderung"). There are several court cases which can be used as precedent cases about what kind of fault warrants what kind of reduction. ...

What you describe is nothing malicious. I'm not a lawyer, so I can't say whether it technically runs afoul of laws proscribing "unauthorized access/use of computer systems." Also, it may technically run afoul of the host's terms and conditions. Again, IANAL, so I can't rule out the sad possibility that you could be in legal trouble for what you did ... ...

After some more research, I found several german retailers like Frankonia and Brownells, which do ship firearm magazines to Austria. My reasoning is as follows: If they were regulated in any way, they would either be confiscated or sent back to the store. In either way, the customers would get in contact with the store, and the store would stop shipping ...

Yes While I can’t speak directly to Austrian law in all the jurisdictions I know about the answer is yes. A tenant must leave the premises is a neat, clean and undamaged manner, if they don’t, the landlord is entitled to recover their costs for making it so. The only thing the tenant is not responsible for is “fair wear and tear” - degradation that is ...

Assuming the company does everything correct irregardless of ownership, and assuming the company makes a profit (no profit = no taxes on profit), if Franz doesn't extract any money through salary or dividends, or any other benefits, then the company just increases in value. At some point in the future Franz or his heirs could sell the company for lots of ...

The corporation is a separate entity from its shareholders and directors and it pays taxes on its income. If no salary, dividend, stock buy back or other benefit is provided to a director or shareholder, the person has no income from the corporation and thus no taxes. This is a generic answer regarding the nature of corporations.

Is this legal? Yes Can they enforce me to keep the NDA forever? No, it ends when you die. Practically, of course, any confidential information you have becomes less useful over time either because it becomes non-confidential or it just goes out of date. They also said that "The contractor take on no liability for the correctness, reliability and ...

I'm guessing that an Amazon Echo would be treated equally to a laptop or smart phone. Apparently Austrian courts decided in 2015 that it's NOT required to pay Rundfunkgebühr for this. This is different from Germany where the supreme court decided in 2012 that you need to cough up cash for any internet connected device. See https://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/...

The company pays all required taxes in the country it is registered it. Also, Franz puts money into the company. The company will generally have to pay taxes on services rendered in Austria, even if the company is not registered in Austria. The jurisdiction of registration is all but irrelevant to the obligation to pay taxes on active business income. ...

The answer to this question varies depending on the jurisdiction, in most places, the losing party pays all legal fees necessary to the winning party's case. This principle is called "costs follow the event" Most of the time, there are exceptions to this rule where: the winning party unnecessarily incurred costs, where the winning party rejected an offer to ...

What is the optimal form of business, if you are living in Austria and want to minimize legal and tax burden? I am not knowledgeable of Austrian law, but much of what you envision does not seem feasible. Otherwise everyone would do that. Short of relocating to a country that has a more reasonable tax system, you will need to develop expertise in fiscal ...

Military officers who violate laws in their official capacity are typically subject only to military discipline. Which in western countries is, AFAIK, far more demanding and punitive than any non-military criminal or civil law. I am only passingly familiar with U.S. martial courts, but enough so to know that the punishment for what you describe would be ...

No. The booklet you saw is either licences by Nintendo or illegal.
