Re: Unemployment benefit entitlement question and a tip

Quote:
The RAV are independent from one to another. Each one sets their one rules. For example, in St Gallen, you are excused to send copies of the applications, in Zurich, you have to document everything. Also, the Personalberater might have a different say on the matter.... Best thing here is do as you are told
Actually although you are right you are wrong. The RAV has very little to do with the process of getting your money in your pocket they are there to get you back to work and it is the AWA and ALK that decide on your right to get the money. Although the RAV might make minor changes you can challenge anything you do not like if it varies from the Arbeitslosenversicherungsverodnung(AVIV) or the same word with gesetzt at the end (AVIG). These rules are for possibly the only time ever in Switzerland harmonised across the whole of Switzerland... That means if you want to send the documents to the RAV and have them forward them fine but if you want to send them directly you can and there is absolutely bugger all the RAV can do about it...
