Function & Tasks

The staff council is a staff representative body in a public institution. The non-academic staff council of the FHP represents all non-academic employees (temporary or permanent employment contracts) of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in all matters of personnel law.

The basis for their work is the staff representation act for the state of Brandenburg (PersVG) and the federal staff representation act (BPersVG).

Pursuant to section 2 PersVG, the department and the staff council work together closely and in a spirit of trust to fulfil their official duties and for the benefit of the employees, in compliance with the law and collective agreements, in order to give effect to the rights of the employees working in the department and, at the same time, to ensure the fulfilment of the tasks incumbent on the department. In making their decisions, the department and the staff council shall take into account the social, economic, societal and environmental environment. The rights of the staff council are essentially divided into co-determination and participation procedures (§ 62 - § 68 PersVG) and the right of initiative (§ 69 PersVG).

Staff meetings

The non-academic staff council holds staff meetings once or twice a year and reports on its activities. Employees have a right to information and debate at the staff meeting. They can also make suggestions.

The non-academic staff council would once again like to thank all staff members for their numerous participations in the staff meeting and all those involved for the reports and information.
