Who pays the continued payment of wages during pregnancy?? Six weeks before. Eight or. twelve weeks after the birth of your child, according to § 3 para. 2 and § 6 para. 1 of the Maternity Protection Act (MuSchG) the general ban on employment. The pre-natal employment ban is a general ban, so you can continue to work at your express request. After the birth of your child, on the other hand, there is an absolute ban on employment. During this time, you may not be employed by your employer, even at your request. You are entitled to maternity pay from the health insurance fund during the maternity protection period.

If certain requirements are met, you are also entitled to a maternity allowance from your employer. In addition, general and individual employment bans can be imposed outside the protection periods. These apply from the day on which you announce your pregnancy to your employer. General employment bans apply, for example, in the case of heavy physical work, harmful exposure to substances or radiation that are harmful to health, standing for long periods at the workplace, occupations with a possible occupational disease as well as increased risk of accidents or piecework.

Individual employment bans, on the other hand, are imposed in view of the pregnant woman's personal state of health. This usually requires a doctor's certificate prohibiting the expectant mother from working. An individual employment ban is certified by a doctor if the life or health of the mother and her unborn child are endangered by the exercise of the activity. Normal pregnancy complaints such as morning sickness do not count as grounds for an individual ban on employment.

Regular water drinking is vital. Yet only 17 percent of the population does. Water, as a natural medicine and as an elixir of life, can contribute a great deal to our well-being and to our physical and mental fitness. Because water is health and life.

Water the thirst quencher without calories

The human body consists of two thirds liquid. Water is its basic element. Only with enough water can the circulatory system and all organs function optimally, and metabolic waste products and toxins can be removed from the body. An adult human releases fluid daily through urine and sweat. If fluids are not replenished immediately, circulatory failure and cardiac and bronchial dysfunction will result. Blood can only flow fluidly through the vessels and supply all organs with nutrients and oxygen if we drink enough water.

If you drink too little, you become depressed and cannot think properly. Therefore, each of us should consume about at least 1 to 2 liters of fluid daily for our health. The best solution is water, an ideal thirst quencher without calories.

What to do about dizziness? Common causes and tips for self-helpNothing else knocks us down so quickly – but dizziness does: The head goes on a merry-go-round, the floor sways, the balance is out of order. Fortunately, the causes are usually harmless. We present new findings and ways that sufferers can help themselves.

Whether it's your first ride on a carousel or being blindfolded while playing hide-and-seek, dizziness is part of everyday fun as a child. Later, you probably experienced the "rotation worm" after your first excessive consumption of alcohol.

It is something completely different when everything in and around us spins, one gets "dizzy" all of a sudden. Because then our highly complex navigation system is out of control – the balance system.

Sitting on cushions and meditating all day, what's the point?? You think meditation is only for Asians, esoterics and hippies? That you are not spiritual enough for it, too restless? Or that this guru nonsense doesn't do anything anyway – at least not for you? If you feel addressed by these questions or rather cliches, you should definitely read on and be proven wrong. Because the research interest around meditating has not increased in vain lately. Scientists are discovering more and more fascinating effects of meditation. On body and mind. And there are a lot of them. Stress reduction or pain relief are only two.

In today's article I have packed the most important findings from scientific research into 7 unbeatable arguments. They prove to you how effective the training from the Far East really is. They give you convincing answers to the question "why meditate??". And who want you to start with it tomorrow ;-).

What meditation is all about?

First of all, let's make sure that you and I are talking about the same thing. Because meditating is not just meditating. Especially with such a hotly debated term, the understanding of what is meant by it varies widely. For a long time meditation was lumped together with esotericism. Maybe you associate it partly with that. The best proof that this is not the case is the fact that in the last decades it has established itself as an effective relaxation method, among other things.

Sick on vacation: what to do? Duty to report + catch upNuisance, but it happens: you get sick on vacation. Instead of relaxing on the beach, you have to stay in bed – with a cold and fever. And now? First: Get well soon! Relax a little anyway. Try to recover soon. The second consolation: If you get sick on vacation, you don't have to fear that your vacation entitlement will expire. However, you need to do a few things for it and meet deadlines…

Sick on vacation: what happens to vacation days?

According to the Federal Vacation Act (BUrlG), every employee in Germany has a legal right to paid recreational leave. The legal minimum vacation is regulated in § 3 BUrlG. According to this, every employee with a 6-day week is entitled to at least 24 days of vacation per year. In the case of a 5-day week, the annual leave entitlement is reduced accordingly to 20 days per year (see chart).

Because the main purpose of the annual vacation is to recover, the vacation requirement does not expire with illness. After all, you can't recover from work while lying in bed and feeling sick. Section 9 of the BUrlG states: "If an employee falls ill during vacation, the days of incapacity for work, as evidenced by a doctor's certificate, shall not be counted towards annual vacation." Sick days are therefore not vacation days.
