Refunding of childcare costs after business trips and trainings
If an MPI employee has been taking part in trainings, there is the possibility of receiving refunds for all childcare costs which had to be arranged in the evenings or during weekends upon request (Administration). Additionally for business trips, the MPI subsidizes arising expenses for childcare (for children up to 14 years) at the place of residence under certain conditions (max. of 86,40€ per day, and 600€ per year).
