Labor law regulations during the corona crisis at the TUK for parents

From August 6th, 2020, employees may be granted temporary leave of absence from work for childcare purposes for a period of up to 34 working days (in the case of a five-day week, part-days possible, hard ship clause for single parents) until 31 December 2020, with continued payment of remuneration, when the following conditions apply:   

-facilities such as Kita/schools are closed (outside the normal school holidays) 

-Children to be cared for are under 12 years of age or are disabled and need help 

-an alternative care of the child(ren) cannot be guaranteed. 

Home-office should be given priority. Positive working time balances (overtime/time credits) must be reduced as a matter of priority. In cases of particular hardship, e.g. in the case of single parents, 67 working days (in the case of a five-day week) can be granted with continued payment of remuneration. Arrangements are made with superiors, (informal) applications are sent to HA 3.1.
