Allowance for internet costs
Do you work from home and do you have an employment contract with Leiden University? Then from January 2021 up to and including 31 August 2021, you will receive an allowance towards the costs of internet use. During this period, the situation will be reviewed every three months to determine whether the allowance is still appropriate.
If legislation or a collective labor agreement is introduced that affects this scheme, it can be amended or canceled.
How much is the compensation?
Regardless of the scope of your employment and regardless of whether you work fully or partially from home, the allowance is 25 euros net per month and will be paid with the monthly salary from January.
When will you not receive an allowance for internet use?
- Do you work on location for the full extent of your employment? Then you won't receive an allowance for internet use.
- If you have not worked for a month due to full-time illness or incapacity for work or full-time extraordinary leave, the home-working allowance is automatically stopped at the end of that month. The internet allowance will also be halted. When you are no longer off sick/incapacitated on a full-time basis, the allowances will start again.
- Under the Collective Labour Agreement, on-call staff, student assistants, freelancers, PhD scholarship students without an employment contract and students are exempt from the home-working allowance of €2 per day and the internet allowance.
- Are you an on-call staffmember, employed by Jobmotion? Then you are not entitled to the allowance either.
