Welcome to the website of the Occupational Integration Management of the University of Paderborn. Here you can find out about general legal and organisational aspects of occupational integration management as well as the specific regulations on BEM at the University of Paderborn.
Unfortunately, no one is usually spared illness or accidents for the rest of their life. Those who are absent for a longer period of time often find it difficult to return to work seamlessly. This is where occupational integration management (BEM) can be a valuable support.
Occupational integration management (BEM) offers you individual assistance in returning to work after a longer period of illness and in the case of more frequent shorter periods of incapacity to work. If you have been ill for more than 6 weeks within the last twelve months, you are entitled to have a BEM carried out in accordance with Art. 167 Para. 2 Social Code IX (SGB IX).
Affected employees can benefit from the BEM procedure in several ways, in particular by:
- reviewing the company's framework conditions in order to investigate the causes of incapacity to work at the workplace
- the possible adaptation of their activities to their health requirements, among other things to prevent the chronification of illnesses
- support and counselling as soon as a new illness becomes apparent
The BEM representatives will accompany you back to work in a purposeful manner.
If you would like more information, please contact us.
We will be happy to answer your questions.
The university is offering a training event on the topic of "Leading with BEM" on 17 October 2023.
