Pledge of secrecy

The consultants are subject to the duty of confidentiality pursuant to Section 203 of the Criminal Code in a special way and/or the duty of secrecy pursuant to Section 4 of the Mediation Act. Strict confidentiality is fundamental to the work of the staff unit.

The duty of confidentiality does not only apply to the contents of the consultation, it also applies to the fact that consultation was sought at all. It applies to superiors and colleagues as well as to the service units of KIT and also to relatives.

Only if the explicit permission of the person seeking advice is given, other relevant persons or offices can be involved.

The staff unit only becomes active upon request of persons seeking advice, i.e. employees, superiors, work groups or employee representatives.
