  • supporting employees in claiming their right to a workplace that is suitable for a disabled person,
  • informing employees about disadvantage compensation for disabled people,
  • ensuring that laws and regulations concerning university members with disabilities are observed. This includes for instance personnel measures (such as employment, relocation, entitlement to leave) and structural measures (especially accessibility).
