Works Council of the Centers for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (GWZ)
The elected Works Council represents the rights and interests of all employees towards the employer according to German law (Works Constitution Act).
The Council works confidentially. It is committed to promoting good working conditions, social interests, compatibility of family and career, and provides support in problems and conflicts related to work. Employees of the three institutions ZAS, ZFL, and ZMO can address their concerns to the Council as a whole or to an individual Council member at any time, and not necessarily to Council representatives of their own Center.
GWZ employees elect the Council members for a period of four years. At regular intervals general joint works meetings are held at the GWZ, where the Council presents its activities to the employees, addressing their wishes and concerns.
