Support for the employment of scientific staff in the wake of the Corona pandemic

With effect from 01 March 2020, the Law for the Support of Science and Students due to the COVID-19 pandemic (Science and Student Support Act) came into force.

Correspondingly, §7 of the WissZeitVG was supplemented by a section 3, according to which the maximum permissible fixed-term duration of scientific staff in the qualification phase can be extended by six months. This is a compensation for disadvantages which is granted to the affected scientific employees in order to be able to pursue their contractually agreed qualification goal and thus also their professional development.

Prerequisites are:

- The employment relationship must exist between 01 March 2020 and 30 September 2020.

- The qualification target agreed upon in the employment contract has not yet been reached and will be pursued further.

Furthermore, the Presidium provides financial support for the continued employment of scientific employees from budget funds, subject to certain conditions.

The continued employment of scientific employees from third-party funds will be granted upon application according to the extension of the project duration.

For further details and advice on all the above, please contact the personnel department and the budget department.
