My employer (in Germany) has decided to terminate the employment contract on grounds of re-structuring of the organization.
I have about 4 and a half weeks of accrued vacation time which I wasn't able to take, so I asked my employer to pay for the accrued vacation. They agreed and confirmed by email that I would get the money on the last day but mentioned that they don't have language for the payout in the termination contract that includes the severances benefits.
Should I trust my employer on the email confirmation or it should be included in the termination contract?
Will the payout be the same as my normal monthly salary for one month and 3 days as I have 4.5 weeks vacation left? My work contract has 5 days work week.
