Employees can address their concerns to the chairperson, the vice-chairpersons or another staff council member they trust. Conversely, the Staff Council provides information on its activities and on topics relevant to employees at the semi-annual staff meetings or by e-mail.

Request for co-determination by the staff council

According to the current legal situation in Thuringia,academic staff whose positions are financed in whole or in part by third-party funding and assistants are not automatically represented by the staff council when they are hired, grouped and have their contracts extended.

It is recommended that all academic staff in externally funded projects and all assistants submit an "Application for Co-determination by the Staff Council" so that they are also represented by the Staff Council when they are recruited, grouped and have their contracts extended, and so that the Staff Council can ensure that legal and collective agreement provisions are observed in their favor.
