Maternity Leave and Parental Leave

When does my maternity leave start? How long can I go on parental leave for? What are my rights as a part-time employee? Expectant parents often have a lot of questions about working and having a baby.

That is why the University of Mannheim has brought together the most important brochures on maternity leave (Mutterschutz) and parental leave (Elternzeit). Please contact Ms. Jörns to order printed versions. 

You can find the PDF versions on the German website of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ).

If you have any questions, please contact your advisor in the Human Resources division.
