I know nothing about german legislation, although I understand they
have very strong employee protection (if the context of your question
is the workplace).

Looking to the future, I believe EU legislation on the subject may
in any case overtake your question.  The person from the UK e-envoy
with whom I recently spoke gave the impression that we can expect
UK guidelines to be superseded by EU ones in the fairly near future
(though it's entirely possible I misunderstood him).
