Professional time out for personal development
Georg wants to complete his studies abroad and learn Spanish, Birgit wants to apply her knowledge as a nurse in a social project for children. Often, however, the professional routine does not leave enough room for your own ideas and wishes. Planned professional time off, however, offers the opportunity to expand knowledge and develop one's personality. Gaining some distance from the work pressure can have a lasting positive effect on mental health and prevent overwork at work or burnout.

One possibility to take leave of absence with an upright employment relationship is the educational leave. The time is used for further training. The increasing numbers in recent years show that this form of professional break is becoming increasingly popular. In order to put the project into practice, the first thing to do is to agree in writing with the employer on the time and extent of the educational leave.
The duration of educational leave can be a maximum of one year. It can also be divided into several sections. A part of this must last at least two months. According to the written agreement with the employer, further training allowances can be requested from the Public Employment Service (AMS) for the duration of the leave (see AMS form).

Free year / sabbatical
In Austria, civil servants and contract employees of the federal and state governments have the opportunity to take a year off. This professional break is not linked to further training. The prerequisites are that there are no business reasons opposing this and that the employee has already worked for a certain period in the public service. The employment relationship remains in place during a year off - shorter periods of leave, e.g. several months, can also be agreed. A framework period is agreed for the savings, during which the employee only receives part of the usual monthly salary. For example: During a five-year framework period, 80 percent of the monthly salary is paid out, but one year off can be taken.
In the private sector, too, limited professional time-outs (sabbaticals) can generally be agreed, but there is no legal basis for this.
