In order to reconcile work/study and care for relatives in need of care, there are offers to work mobile or from home, Financial Support For Completing A Doctorate, and family-friendly working and committee times. In addition, we offer employees and students support with counselling, coaching and further education events.

  • Information on care in the collective agreement of the states (TV-L)

    In addition to the general legal regulations, such as the Nursing Care Leave Act (German: Pflegezeitgesetz) or the Nursing Care Insurance Act (German: Pflegeversicherungsgesetz), there are also paragraphs in the collective agreement of the states (German: Tarifvertrag der Länder) that are relevant for employees with relatives in need of care:

    • Teilzeit: gemäß § 11 1.1 TV-L (Part-time: if, according to a medical certificate, a relative in need of care is to be cared for)
    • Arbeitsbefreiung: gem. § 29 I Nr. e) cc) TV-L (Exemption from work: in case of serious illness of a person living in the same household)
    • Sonderurlaub: gemäß § 28 TV-L (Special leave: important reason is given if the need for care of the relative is justified by a medical certificate)

    If you have any questions regarding labour law, please contact your contact person in the Human Resources Department (German: Personaldezernat). You will find your contact person and responsibilities on this website:

  • Support in emergencies and exceptional situations

    Fluxx emergency care (Fluxx-Notfallbetreuung) provides spontaneous and punctual support in the care and responsibility for elderly or ill relatives or partners when your regular daily support falls away unexpectedly. Fluxx ensures the daily structure of your relatives in need of support. This includes:

    • Help for independent living in the household, among other things with everyday tasks
    • Accompaniment outside the home, e.g. for walks, visits, doctor's appointments or shopping

    Employees and students of Leibniz Universität Hannover can get personal advice and help through Fluxx.
