COSTS OF ATTENDING FOR INTERVIEW
|COSTS OF ATTENDING FOR INTERVIEW
Austrian courts hold that job applicants are entitled to reimbursement of the costs they have incurred in connection with an interview in cases where such reimbursement was expressly agreed or where the applicant is expressly summoned by the employer to attend a personal interview and there is therefore reason to assume that the employer undertook, by implication, to reimburse the costs. There is no entitlement to reimbursement if, in particular, the employer made it clear beforehand that costs would not be reimbursed or circumstances indicate that reimbursement was excluded. The main criterion taken into consideration here is normal practice in the sector concerned.
