Employment regulations during the corona crisis at the TUK (08.05.2020)

The risk of infection is still high. We are required to do everything possible to contain the spread. This requires further measures of occupational health and safety and care for our employees. The TUK is therefore maintaining it´s minimal operation with a minimum presence for employees on campus.

Against this background, the following regulations apply in accordance with the current specifications of the Ministry of the Interior and Finance (letters ISM dated 10.03.,16.03. and 16.04.2020):

1. employees in the risk group according to the Robert Koch Institute and see homepage: https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/Steckbrief.html submit a certificate from the company physician Dr. Fischer or their family physician to HA 3 via their superiors The further procedure is agreed in detail with the superior. There is a release from the obligation to attend the TUK. The work is to be performed in your homeoffice.

If this is not possible, availability during the specified normal working hours is ensured by switching the work telephone to a private telephone connection or to the work mobile phone. Contact is also maintained via e-mail.

2. employees who have to look after children under 12 years of age due to the closure of schools and daycare centres (or similar) may in certain cases be granted a leave of absence from work of up to 20 working days (or even longer in cases of particular hardship). This also applies to employees who have to care for close relatives due to the closure of semi- or full-time inpatient nursing facilities (Nos. 1 and 2, letter from the ISM dated 16.04.20). The details are agreed between supervisors and employees, an (informal) application for leave of absence can be made in the personnel department.

If possible, availability during the specified normal working hours must be ensured by switching the work telephone to a private telephone connection or to the work mobile phone. Contact should also be maintained via e-mail.

3. In the event of an officially ordered quarantine by order of an authority in accordance with IfSG and IfSGDV RP, employees are not on sick leave. The official order is sent to the Human Resources Department via the supervisors. Homeoffice is performed as a regular operation. The details are determined between the employee and the supervisor.

If this is not possible, availability during the specified normal working hours is ensured by switching the work telephone to a private telephone connection or to the work mobile phone. Contact is also maintained via e-mail.

4. in the event of a positive corona test, the employees are on sick leave. Through their superiors, they submit the order of the authorities to the personnel department. Employees are not obliged to provide services.

5. for all other employees, superiors are required to enable mobile working in order to avoid being present at the TUK.

For employees who do not meet the requirements for working from home and who are unable to take on alternative tasks from home, the respective supervisors may order the suspension of the obligation to attend the TUK with continued payment of remuneration. In such cases, the obligation to rework is waived.
Availability during the specified normal working hours is ensured by switching the work telephone to a private telephone connection or to the work mobile phone. Contact is also maintained via e-mail.
In the current crisis situation, working from home means working from home during the personally determined working hours, as far as this is possible. The superiors decide who else is needed at the workplace. Contact with superiors, colleagues and applicants is maintained by telephone or e-mail. Work telephones are to be switched to private telephone connections or to the work mobile phone.
For home work, mobile terminals from the TUK should be used as far as possible. If no mobile terminals of the TUK are available, private terminals may be used. The RHRK work instructions apply to the use of private end devices: https://www.rhrk.uni-kl.de/homeoffic.

Holiday
Operating with reduced attendance at the TUK does not mean that employees have to take holidays. The holiday entitlement remains unaffected.
Any leave that has already been approved must be taken, unless attendance on business is required.

Overtime 
Overtime or overtime hours can be worked as required and in consultation with superiors. Overtime must be documented in time recording or on time sheets.

These regulations apply until further notice.
