English to German translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Human Resources / Arbeitsvertrag
English term or phrase:i.a.
In einem Arbeitsvertrag (Englisch, jedoch von einem schwedischen Unternehmen geschrieben) kommt unter "Additional employment benefits" folgender Satz vor:
8.3 The Employee shall be included in the Company’s at each time valid insurance policy on i.a. work accidents in accordance with the Company’s at each time valid policy on employment rules and conditions (for the time being as set out in Sections 7 and 8 thereof).
i.a. steht so viel ich weiss für "in absentia". Wie ist das denn hier zu verstehen? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe!
While I quite like David's posting, I'd still talk to the customer, offering that as an option, because the wording is still odd, but that may be eben weil es von einem Skandinavischen Muttersprachler verfasst wurde.
Go back to your customer on this one. That's certainly what I'd do - "in absentia" makes not an atom of sense in the context. How about posting it under SW>GE, as a Swedish speaker might recognise the original Swedish from the English (and might chuckle!)
