The securing of good practice takes place at the ZfL on several levels. The joint GWZ Works Council represents the rights and interests of all employees towards the employer. The achievement of equal opportunity is considered as a central principle guiding the ZfL’s work and development. The ZfL is also guided by the standards of good scientific practice of the Leibniz Association. The employees appoint ombudspersons who act as contact persons in all questions of ensuring good scientific practice and collegial work at the ZfL.
