Förderprogramm "Integration durch Qualifizierung IQ"

What happens if you are not assigned a company to work in?

When your assignment ends and you are not deployed by your employer in any other company, this is known as "verleihfreie Zeit” (loan-free time). Loan-free time is not leisure time. Loan-free time also cannot be deducted from your working time account as minus hours without your agreement. Loan-free time has to be paid:

  • You will continue to receive your salary even though you are not currently working in any company.
  • Your employer must be able to reach you during this time.
  • If a new company is found for you, you must be available.
  • Your employer cannot make you take holiday during the loan-free time.

Please note: if the temporary employment agency is unable to find a company for you to work in, it cannot force you to reduce your plus hours. That is prohibited!
