jacquiam has earned some respectjacquiam has earned some respect
employment release agreement/freistellungsvertrag

Hi All
Is anyone able to inform me a little bit more or refer me to relevant websites for the situation as follows:

my partner and I came to CH June last year as my partner got an 80% 4 day job in a medical clinic as doctor and homeopath. After 8 months she was given 3 months notice as the clinic was reducing the number of doctors for financial reasons - last on first off process. She was offered and accepted a contract whereby she would be paid the full notice period and did not need to attend work.

One of the conditions of the contract is that, of course, should she find other work she has to report this to the 'old' employer/clinic. There would then be a recalculation of the income paid out (reducing it by the amount of the new income).

Does anyone know if this recalculation occurs after a 100% 5 day job income is reached i.e. that when she has done one days work in the new job (which means she receives a 100% income), any income over that point is calculated against the 80% she is paid by the 'old' emloyer? If she takes on work that means she is technically paid full-time plus ('old' employer 80% 4 days, 'new' employer 60% 3 days job), is it correct that the recalculation of the 'old' income is for two days work? Hope this is understandable.

Thanks heaps for any insights and help with this.

She is getting paid during a notice period and is still employed until that ends. If she finds another job and starts during the notice period, then any income earned from the new employer during the notice period will be deducted from the notice period salary. The clause is there so she can't be paid from both jobs during the notice period. Her boss was very kind in not making her work the notice period.

Thanks for the reply. As there is no other job in sight at the moment, there is no income expected to be declared.

You are right, the boss is very kind in making her not work during the notice period. The other side is that the boss does not want her building relationships with patients and possbly attracting them away. And the boss was not kind signing her on to 8 months let her go - their financial problems, it is now known, were present before the job was offered. The job was taken on in good faith, the move to CH with all related costs and stress was made, while the boss (he admitted this) hoped all would work out with the financial problems - that part was certainly not nice.

But it is what it is - onwards and upwards!!

maybe the boss has the last laugh, by not providing any homeopathic treatment, the treatment is even more diluted and therefore even more potent!
