For our safety and protection the following measures are necessary.

• Labour law

FAQs for employees (home office, time off, vacation, 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, opens a file in a new window" apply.

Information Security

The topic of corona and current developments could be massively exploited for this purpose. When sending e-mails, therefore, pay particular attention to the correct sender address (e.g.:, the target address of links (e.g.: ) and the overall logic of possible sendings in connection with the corona crisis!
