Easy language

How the contact to the job center works - in plain language*

*All people should be able to understand our info.
Light language helps people do this.
For example: people who can read poorly.
Or people who speak little German.

We use simple words.

Heavy words we explain.
For example: foreign words or technical words.

We separate long words with a hyphen.
For example: social law book.

We make short sentences and no subordinate clauses.

The health of all people is very important.
Many things are different because of the Corona crisis.
Also at our job center.

The Job Center does everything:
To keep you safe.
And to keep the staff safe.

You can still reach the Job Center well.
You can:

  • read a lot of info on the Internet.
  • ask questions on the phone or with emails.

You can do very many things with phone or computer. You only need to come to the service office for special things.

The job center tells you: If you need to come to the service office. Please don't come to the Dienst-Stelle without an appointment.


You must not come to the service office:

  • If you may have the disease from Corona virus.
  • If you have cough.
  • If you have bad air.

You must then call the service office.
You clarify on the phone with the service office: What you need to do.
