Introduction to Employment Law

Every employer has the obligation to comply with Swiss Law in his employment relationships.

Certain steps, like the conclusion of the employment contract, the management of leave periods and absences as well as the end of the employment relationship follow specific rules.

In order to comply with the legal framework and to avoid possible sanctions or damages, it is essential to know the ABCs of the Swiss employment law.
