The operational life at Fraunhofer UMSICHT is regulated by different legal sources (laws, ordinances, collective bargaining agreements). This includes the laws of individual (e. g. working hours act, social security code volumes, youth employment law) and collective (e. g. works council constitution act, collective bargaining act) labor law. Located in between the collective bargaining agreements and the contract of employment as a contract under private law are the works agreements that are negotiated between the works council and the employer. To Fraunhofer UMSICHT, the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement for civil service employees (TVöD - Tarifvertrag des Öffentlichen Dienstes) of the federal government are valid.
