Angestellte (employees): pursuant to the Angestelltengesetz (Law on Salaried Employment) of 1921, Angestellte (employees) are dependent workers employed under private law and rendering commercial services (salespeople, canvassers and advisors, bookkeepers), higher-level non-commercial services (e.g. technical managers and department managers, driving teachers, orchestra musicians) or performing office work. The employment status of salaried employees (as opposed to that of a wage-earner) can also be agreed upon in a contract. In public service, employees under contract (Vertragsbedienstete) are distinguished from civil servants (Beamte).
