VIRUSREGULATIONS FOR PARENTS AND CARERS AT THE TUK DURING THE CORONA PANDEMIC (AS OF 23.12.2020)

LABOR REGULATIONS AT THE TUK

 

From the latest circular issued by the Ministry on 23/12/20 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 (days already used from 2020 will be counted):

 

  • 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.

 

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

 

 

Caring relatives

 

The statutory regulations for acute care (time off work up to 10 days) are still available to employees.

 

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