With these measures, we want to ensure that the university is not just family-friendly on paper, but that employees can make use of concrete provisions and rules that benefit their family situation.
Irrespective of who would be in need of care caring or for whom you have to organise care, you have several options regarding labour law or study law for having some time to care or to organise care.
- flexible working hours (only AUP)
- early maternity holiday for fathers “Papamonat” (dad month)
- special leave/inability to work
- mobility and parking spaces
General law regulations applicable to parents, guardians, and carers at University:
Information on academic leave of absence
Care day release (5 working days each year, for children under 12y 5 days more)
Care leave or part time work because of care
Human Resources has provided a guideline on taking time out from your career to help you to plan how best to take time off and how to re-enter the workplace.
If you have any further legal questions regarding family care responsibilities, please contact the unikid & unicare information centre, your employee’s council or Human Resources.
