German term or phrase:Mehrbelastung und Minderbelastung
I am not totally happy with the definitions I found for these terms. Seems to have to do with additional financial burden and minimum financial burden - but doesn't quite make sense to me yet. This is part of the statutes for an Austrian College.
The full paragraph: "Der Rektor, die Vizerektoren, die Dekane und der Kanzler haben im Rahmen der hierfür vorgesehenen Mittel Anspruch auf eine angemessene Abgeltung. Bei der Bemessung der Abgeltung einer Mehrbelastung ist die mit einem ersetzten Verdienstentgang verbundene Minderbelastung zu berücksichtigen. Die Festsetzung der Abgeltungsleistungen erfolgt durch den Stiftungsrat."
Hi guys, thanks for your responses. Unfortunately there is no more helpful context. The statutes before this one talk about what the key executive positions in the college are and the ones after it talk about how the rector gets elected. Definitely a bit of a challenge.
The Mehr-/Minderbelastung might mean that if they work more than the agreed upon hours in 1 week, and work less hours the following week, they are entitled to more pay for the first week, but will face a reduction in pay for the second week. E. g. 1. week: +200 Euros, 2. week: - 80 Euros, total additional amount to be paid: 120 Euros.
but I get the impression that "Belastung" refers to the work load. If people work more than agreed, they are entitled to some payment in addition to their salary/fee (?) and if they get less money (Verdienstentgang) one has to take into account that they worked less.
