Questions and answers

Nursing leave is a right to leave of up to six months without wage compensation. The entitlement can be asserted if a close relative with (expected) at least care level 1 is to be cared for at home. The notice period for a claim is ten working days. Upon request, the Federal Office for Family and Civil Society Affairs issues an interest-free loan to the person providing care. This legal entitlement to time off only applies to employees in a company with more than 15 employees (i.e. 16 employees or more). A company with 15 or less employees can offer the regulation voluntarily.

The residential and supervision contract act contains the following rights: Pre-contractual information must be available in an easily understandable language about benefits and payments. Contracts are concluded in writing, and in principle indefinitely. The agreed payment must be reasonable in amount. An increase in the fee requires justification and is only possible in certain cases. Entrepreneurs must offer an adaptation of the contract if the care or care needs change. The contract can only be terminated by the entrepreneur for good cause. For consumers, however, special notice options apply.

Family care time is also a right to exemption. However, you must work at least 15 hours a week (or the weekly annual average). The maximum entitlement period is two years. Family care time is possible in a company with 26 employees or more. Here too, as with the care period, an interest-free loan can be applied for from the BAFzA. The notice period is eight weeks before the loan is taken up. A written agreement on the reduction and distribution of working time and the duration must be concluded between the employer and the employee. A company with 25 or fewer than 25 employees can offer the regulation voluntarily.

Care Charter is a catalog that describes and emphasizes the rights of people in need of care and care: this is to improve their living situation. Because, of course, people with help and care needs have the same rights as everyone else. The Charter summarizes how these rights should be implemented in everyday life. However, this charter is not a binding law.
