Re: Urgent: unpaid leave + tips on legal aid

Thanks much Richard.

I managed to find some more info on the unpaid leave situation for future reference.

a) AVG/IV/? does not need to paid as long as you earned >4800 in a year, and thus paid >425 CHF. This is regardless of whether your income was more than 4800 in a given year, so the minimum is enough. I got this info from phoning the cantonal authority on AVG etc. Also, if you are only unpaid for part of the year, you do not need to register with AVG as an unemployed person.

b) BVG needs to paid at 3% by the employer normally even if you are on leave. In my case I end up paying this. The source of this info is my employer.
