The representative board for disabled employees is to support the intergration of disabled persons into the company, to represent their interests and to offer them advice and assistance.

Mainly the board has to guard that current legislation (laws, edicts, labour and works council agreements, administrative instructions) in favour of the disabled employees are implemented and also that especially the duties on part of the employer are fulfilled.

The board also applies at the relevant body for measures subserving the disabled. It collects suggestions and complaints from disabled employees and works by negociations with the employer towards their implementation resp. settlement.

The board has to be consulted regarding all issues connected with individual disabled employees or the group of them. This especially applies for hiring, transposition or notice of termination, but also for the fitment of the working place with appliances according to the needs of disabled employees.
