The Germans are big on trying to "digitalize paper work" - they do try, but then there are others (Act on Proof is the Directive (EU) 2019/1152 on transparent and predictable working conditions in the European Union ("Directive") adopted by the European legislator, which the German legislator must transfer into national law by 1 August 2022.) who think having everything related to employment contracts still works best when everything is printed out on dead trees; it's called the "Nachweisgesetz" - if employers not put new contracts (from August 2022 onwards) in paper they can be fined. So my employer, who was fully digitalised, has to go back to paper printed contracts.
