Longer working hours allowance because of the strong franc

Due to the continuing strength of the franc, the Federal Council has adjusted the conditions for short-time work compensation.

Normally, the law provides for the entitlement of short-work benefits, a maximum period of 12 months while in the first six months two unpaid days of sick leave must be supported by the employer, and from the seventh reference month, the employer must support three unpaid days of sick leave.

New is the maximum period of 18 months and the unpaid days of sick leave period is reduced to one day per month. This regulation applies from 1 February 2016 to 31 July 2017th.
