*** Effects from the last collective bargaining agreement for the year 2018 ***

In the bargaining round in 2017, pay grade 6 was introduced for the salary groups 9 to 15 starting on 1 January 2018, and a raise in pay for this grade was agreed on starting on 1 October 2018. For employees who were in pay grade 5 on 31 December 2017, the time spent in that pay grade will be counted. You were placed in pay grade 6 on 1 January 2018 if you had spent at least five years in pay grade 5.

A similar improvement was agreed on for employees in the “small” salary group 9, for whom pay grade 4 had been the final pay grade. After five years in pay grade 4, they will receive a raise in salary.

The Finanzamt Dessau-Roßlau - Financial Services - will implement the change.

*** Reasonableness of Hotel Costs according to Sec. 7 of the German Travel Expense Act (Bundesreisekostengesetz, BRKG) ***

Because hotel prices have continually risen in recent years, it was necessary to increase the amount considered reasonable for hotel costs from 60€ to 80€ (not including breakfast). If the cost of the hotel is higher than this, reasons must be given.

For events/conferences:

When booking accommodations from the rooms pre-reserved by the event organizers, there is no set upper limit.

On the following pages, you can find more on the following topics:

  • Working hours
  • Annual closing periods
  • Business trips
  • Vacation
  • Reporting in sick and returning to work after an illness
  • Termination
  • Additional part-time job
  • Payment of salary etc.

You can find an overview of the explanations on this page.

Anhalt University’s HIS-QIS online portal is used to manage absences of employees (employees under the collective bargaining agreement, apprentices).

The University’s HIS-QIS online portal can be accessed through the Internet:

Registration to the portal is done using Anhalt University’s central user administration. For the username and password, use the log-in data you got from the IT Service Center (ISC) that you already use for central services like signing in to the central email system or for WiFi. If you have changed the initial password you received, then you will need to use the new password.

You can download instructions with more details on recording absences here.

Besides many private providers of training sessions and continuing education courses, Anhalt University employees can also make use of the following offers from the state:

  • Training and continuing education at the Aus- und Fortbildungsinstitutes des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt
  • IT courses at the Dataport IT-Bildungs- und Beratungszentrums
  • Training and continuing education according to the State Educational Leave Act (Bildungsfreistellungsgesetz LSA)

The current continuing education programs from the Aus- und Fortbildungsinstitutes des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt and the Dataport IT-Bildungs- und Beratungszentrums can be viewed by clicking the links above.

To register for courses at either institution, contact the Human Resource Department. To do so, send the completed and signed forms

at the latest 8 weeks before the seminar starts.

Please note that each organizational unit must pay the participant fees for employees in that unit out of the available budget for continuing education or from existing project funds. If participation in the course is not possible for good reasons, the Human Resource Department must be informed immediately in writing. After registering for a course, there are cancellation fees.

When you have successfully completed a continuing education course, we ask that you send a copy of the participation certificate for your personnel file.
