Diese Frage scheint off-topic zu sein, da sie die deutsche Verwaltung, nicht die deutsche Sprache an sich betrifft. – Carsten S Jan 18 '14 at 20:36
What does your research tell you? – Em1 Jan 18 '14 at 20:52
Ich habe das nicht verstanden . – mina Jan 18 '14 at 20:53
@CarstenSchultz... aber für einen Lerner sind es ja zunächst mal Wörter. Warum soll man da nicht kurz drauf eingehen. Dann könnte ich ja, wenn Computerterminologie gefragt wird, auch sagen, das ist nicht pc.stackexchange :) – Emanuel Jan 18 '14 at 20:59
Could you maybe add some information telling us why after consulting a dictionary such as you still don't know what the differences are? – fifaltra Jan 18 '14 at 21:18

The difference is the type of employment. Arbeitnehmer are all employees. Beamte are public servants and Angestellte are no public servants. In some jobs (teachers for example) you can be employed as one or the other.

Beamte are not employees, they don't do work (instead they provide a service) and they don't receive a salary (instead they receive "aliments"). – Philipp Jan 19 '14 at 18:40
