14. Employment Rights

The company reports on how it complies with nationally and internationally recognised standards relating to employee rights as well as on how it fosters staff involvement in the company and in sustainability management, what goals it has set itself in this regard, what results it has achieved thus far and where it sees risks.

The employees can actively participate in the design of the strategy process and are involved and informed about changes by the Directorate, in employee meetings and in our staff magazine.
The staff members can provide input via the employee suggestion scheme. Employment rights are strengthened by the works council, the scientific-technical committee and the equal opportunities officer.
Permanent staff is compensated in accordance with Germany‘s Collective Agreement for Public Service Employees (TVöD) or similar agreements (student assistants).
