Terms of employment
As an employee you have both rights and obligations, as well as certain benefits.
In case of emergency
Find out how to raise the alarm or report an incident such as an accident or occupational injury. You will also find information on what to do in case of threats and risk of violence, or if unauthorised people enter the workplace. In addition, there is information on evacuation, first aid training and crisis management support.
Working for a public authority
Working for a public authority means working in the service of citizens. For example, you must be aware of the rules governing conflict of interest and secondary employment. You are also entitled to certain benefits.
Staff appraisals are to be held with all employees. Appraisals are based on the needs of the organisation as well as on your individual goals.
Remote work refers to work regularly carried out at home, or at another agreed location outside the main workplace, with atisfactory insurance cover, one or more days per week, within Sweden’s borders. The Lund University guidelines for remote work apply to employees at the university with the exception of those employees included in the current working hours agreement for teaching staff or the local manager agreement.
Insurance for employees at Lund University
As an employee of Lund University, you are covered by occupational injury insurance on the way to and from your workplace as well as during working hours. You are also covered by a group life insurance policy. In addition, you are insured when travelling on university business or when stationed abroad for your work.
In principle, secondary employment is any occupation in which you engage temporarily or permanently alongside your employment.
Are you about to retire or are you curious about how pensions work?
There is a lot to consider when you decide to resign from your job. For example, you must submit your resignation in Primula, and the notice period can vary. You must continue to fulfil your work duties as usual during the notice period.
