The annual holiday leave entitlement for public employees under the Collective Agreement for the Public Service of the Federation (TVöD Bund) is 30 calendar days for full-time employees - for part-time employees, your number of hours will account for less, accordingly. Apprentices have 28 vacation days per year.

The holiday provisions of the TVöD Bund has two special features that are attractive for staff members:

  • Our employees can take unused holidays from a given year in principle even to the end of the following year. This should be the exception, but in principle, it offers more flexibility.
  • On 24 and 31 December, our employees are usually free from work - so they do not need to take any leave or submit flextime for those days. And if you still urgently have to work on one of these days, such as in the technical divisions, then you will get an "extra" free day at another time.
