The anti-discrimination laws of the federal state and the federal states prohibit discrimination in the workplace on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin, disability or age.

Another example is the implicit duty of mutual cooperation. Mutual cooperation requires that the parties actually do the things on which they have already agreed so that the benefits of this agreement can arise.
