Re: Legal Insurance is it worth it.

There are so many things not covered that it really isn't worth it. (e.g. Divorce is not covered)

Also here all the legal costs are automatically awarded to the loser, so if you are certain of your case you can always start proceedings.
I beg to differ on this. At one of my previous employers, I had a tiff with my manager. He then wrote me a very bad Leaving Certificate( Zeugnis ). This was 3.5 years of my life. No employer wanted to take me after that.

I paid an attorney to take this to court, and I had them write me a proper Work Certificate. This cost me almost 9000CHF to litigate.

Every time an attorney lifts a finger. It is 2000CHF+.

Legal insurance is definitely worth it.
