Representative for Employees with a Disability

The Representative for Employees with a Disability provides assistance to all employees of the University of Mannheim as well as their family members.

The representative’s main responsibilities include:

  • offering individual advice to employees with questions about the German Social Code (SGB IX), helping them with initial applications for determining a disability or declaring a deterioration in health, as well as establishing contact to social services and integration offices,
  • 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).
