severance payments and impact on eligibility for unemployment benefits
Hi - I have gone through this forum in detail however I have not found a clear and confident answer for this question.
Is there anyone on the forum who was made redundant and given a lump sum severance package. Did the unemployment benefits get delayed due to this lump sum payment?
So for example you were told about redundancy on 1st August, then your notice period ended on 31st October which is the date your employment ended, then the company paid a lump sum of CHF 30000 as a lump sum severance. Does this lump sum delay your entitlement to unemployment benefits from 1st November?
Please someone who has actually gone through this situation kindly respond.
