Employees with a disability or chronic illness may face extra challenges during their working day. The Representatives for Employees with a Disability at the University of Mannheim can provide advice and support.
They can give you information on adapting your office to your needs, and on compensation for unfilled mandatory quota places in the workplace and disadvantage compensation. They can also support you in questions relating to the Social Code (SGB), initial disability appraisals (Erstantrag) and declaring a deterioration in your health (Verschlechterungsantrag).
If you have any other questions, you can also contact the Department of Gender Equality and Social Diversity.
