Telecommuting and Remote Working

Telecommuting and Remote Working

Telecommuting and remote working can help employees to manage their personal and work responsibilities.

The telecommuting option is intended to provide an alternative to traditional flexitime, offering greater flexibility in terms of where and when staff work.

“Remote working” on the other hand is intended to cover short-term, one-off situations at work or at home. This option allows staff to work for a maximum of 21 days a year (of which max. 3 days a month) at home.


Temporary remote work policy ("home office") for the 2022/23 winter semester (October 1, 2022 - March 31, 2023):

Employees may, with the consent of their supervisor, work from home for up to 40 % of their workdays in a given month, provided that this is compatible with teaching activities in the winter semester 2022/23. Home office is possible on a full-day or half-day basis.
