Compatibility of Family and Work

Family commitment policy

The provision for family commitments is one of the new policies laid down in the German law regulating fixed-term contracts for academic staff working in institutions for higher education (WissZeitVG). It enables employees who are on fixed-term contracts to extend their maximum timespan up to two years per child if the childcare falls into the academic qualifying period(s) and the child and career live in the same household.

Please visit the pages of the Family Services Office at Technische Universität Berlin for further information on legislation and procedure.
