  • Labour law: FAQs for employees (home office, time off, holidays, childcare etc.) can be found on the intranet.

  • Business trips: In general, it is recommended to postpone decisions on business trips until further notice or to take other options (e.g. "virtual" participation in meetings).
    Before a business trip is planned, it should be checked whether it is really necessary or whether there are other possibilities. It should be noted that presence meetings (also at other organisations) should still be avoided. In any case, the regulations of the leaflet "Informationen on Business Trips" apply.
