The counselling centre, in cooperation with the severely handicapped employee representatives and the inclusion officer, works towards enabling equal opportunities for employees with a severe disability:
The severely handicapped employee representatives at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences can recommend and support the application for recognition of a severe disability.
In the implementation of equal opportunities, we are guided, among other things, by the applicable laws, such as the Book 9 of the Social Code (SGB IX - duty of care and promotion), the Bavarian Disability Equality Act (BayBGG - promoting employment opportunities for people with disabilities), the Bavarian Inclusion Policy and the Bavarian Constitution (art. 118a - no discrimination against people with disabilities).
You can find the contact details of the severely handicapped employee representatives as well as their tasks in the context of the university under the following link: Severely Disabled Representation Ansbach University of Applied Sciences
Here you can find information and advice on the following topics:
The severely handicapped employee representatives
In working life, there are special duties of the employer and protection rights in favour of severely disabled people. The severely handicapped employee representatives represent the interests of severely disabled people or people with equal status to severely disabled people and assist them.
The tasks of the severely handicapped employee representatives include the integration of severely disabled people into the employment relationship. Integration offices support the severely handicapped employee representatives at the workplace with this task on site. Another aspect is the application for measures for severely disabled people, especially of a preventive nature.
These can be, for example, technical work aids or a subsidy for integration. A first point of contact is the Integration Office (Integrationsamt), in Bavaria the Inclusion Office (Inklusionsamt), and the associated integration special services of the respective district.
