New Regulations in the Maternity Protection Act 2018

Since 1 January 2018 all students who are pregnant or nursing are subject to the protections afforded by the Maternity Protection Act.

In order to make use of the advantages assured you by the Maternity Protection Act and to receive information about all relevant regulations, please inform the university of your pregnancy or nursing status.

The University Service for Family, Equality, and Occupational Health (HSFG) is the point of contact for the notice and all issues related to maternity protection for students.

According to §15 MuSchG, students should give notice of their pregnancy or that they’re nursing as soon as possible. Therefore, please contact us, if you are pregnant or nursing. Only if you give us notice, can you use all of the advantages the Maternity Protection Act and to learn what rights and options you have. We’re pleased to advise you about other questions about pregnancy and parenting and welcome your queries. Students who notify us of their pregnancy and later send us a copy of their child’s birth certificate receive a bib with the Nuremberg Tech logo as a welcome gift. Fathers who are studying at Nuremberg Tech and have received counseling from HSFG also receive a bib, if they send us a copy of their child’s birth certificate.
