3. Course contents *

In this course, we primarily focus on the social security’s range of application, funding, and administrative structures, all against the background of its genesis.

Two themes are at the heart of the course: a methodological study of the wage supplements – i.e. health service contributions and family income supplements -, and wage substitutes in case of illness or accident in general law versus industrial accidents and occupational diseases, in case of unemployment and in the form of a retirement or survivor’s pension. The safeguard arrangements are spoken about in the margin of the course.

This course does not only deal with social security arrangements for employees, it continuously looks at the analogous rules for the self-employed and for civil servants.
