So I went to the Unia today, and the answer was more than fun, so basically, vacations etc etc etc that come in the salary statement, and that pay taxes, according the Unia, do not enter the unemployment benefit calculation, Só from 83K per year they say, they want to pay me 70%-10% of taxes of 52K, so 30K chf, that mean nothing for them, and the persons are a piece of...

So they even told me that I should receive even less than I did...

Seems being married means nothing for this people, and 3200CHF to support a house and wife, +2 health insurance it's great, way to go!

Damm perfect!
Aw shucks, the streets aren't paved with gold either.....

If your paid a daily rate PLUS 8.33% Holiday pay, the Holiday pay is not added to salary even through 1.1% insurance premium was paid by you.

It's the same for everybody.......If you take holiday whilst on RAV you probably won't get paid those days as they will come out of the Holiday pay fund

Re: Unemployment Benefits calculation

Hi There,

I have a specific question on the salary calculation done by Arbeitlosenkasse/Caisse de chomage.

The situation is following:
Last year(2014) my wife was with RAV/ORP for 40 days. She got the salary based on her last six months salary at that time. After that she got a temporary contract job for six months exactly. This job had higher salary than before.
But now the Arbeitlosenkasse/Caisse de chomage has calculated based on old(lower) salary.

Question: We were expecting that the calculation will be based on most recent six month salary. Is this correct?

On phone with my basic french, the person at Caisse de chomage could not understand the situation. I am planning to there personally to ask. However, I would like to know the actual rule. Can somebody provide more information on this situation.

Cheers

Your wife is in an open rahemnfrist, any unemployment for a 2 year period is based on that. Nothing can be done, any new rahemnfrist is based on 12 months earnings during the current rahemnfrist with salary based on the last 6 months earnings.

Re: Unemployment Benefits calculation

FYI - I have just now the confirmation that ALK(Caisse de chomage) has taken into account the most recent six months Salary. She had recalculated because she forgot April month's salary...

Did you have a fresh waiting period? It sounds most odd & your insured salary should shown along with the applicable dates on your monthly payout form.

Re: Unemployment Benefits calculation

Actually, I have not seen the letter as I am away.
What I know is that, for April month they have deducted 9 days for waiting period and gave salary for remaining day(s). They have corrected 'taggeld'.
