VIRUSREGULATIONS FOR PARENTS AND CARERS AT THE TUK DURING THE CORONA PANDEMIC (AS OF April 9, 2021)

LABOR REGULATIONS AT THE TUK

From the latest circular issued by the Ministry on 09/04/2021 regarding labor regulations for parents and caregivers at TUK, the following is the status:

 

Employees covered by collective bargaining agreements may be granted a leave of absence from work of up to 34 working days (in the case of a five-day week, half days, additional days in cases of hardship/single parents) for the purpose of childcare, with continued payment of remuneration in accordance with § 21 TV-L, subject to the following conditions until the end of the year '21 or at least until June 4th,21:

 

  • facility such as daycare center/school is closed
  • children to be cared for are under 12 years of age or are disabled and dependent on assistance
  • alternative care for the child or children cannot be ensured

 

Mobile work options are to be prioritized. Positive working time balances (overtime, extra hours and flexitime credits) should be reduced as a matter of priority.In addition, goodwill arrangements should be found for employees with families and care responsibilities.

Please note: if a facility offers emergency care for children, the leave of absence will not be granted.

 

In addition, parents can receive an additional 10 days of children's sick pay by the health insurer. This also applies when daycare centers and schools are closed and the child is not ill.

 

Caring relatives

At least until June 30th, 2021, leave with continued payment of remuneration shall be granted for up to 20 working days per close relative in need of care if the acute care situation is related to the COVID 19 pandemic and care cannot be ensured in any other way, e.g. due to the official closure of an inpatient care facility or the failure of an outpatient care service until the end of 2021. See the ministry circular  dated April 9th,  2021.

 

Students

An interim financial aid for German and foreign students in pandemic-related emergency situations can be applied for at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) until September 30th, 2021.

 

Consultations can take place by telephone, e-mail or video conference (via the mentoring marketplace) by arrangement.
