so far i know and according to this http://www.news.admin.ch/message/?lang=de&msg-id=35872 law says nothing (Oct. 2010).

"Seit dem 1. Juli 2005 erhalten erwerbstätige Frauen in der Schweiz während 14 Wochen eine Mutterschaftsentschädigung, die 80 Prozent des Erwerbseinkommens deckt. Ein Vaterschaftsurlaub ist in keinem Bundesgesetz geregelt."

Short translation: mother receives 80% of the salary for 14 weeks. The paternity leave is not regulated.

Luckily i was given one week paid by the employer.
Thanks for the link La Mano de Dios. From that page it looks like there is an on-going discussion/proposal to give parental leave to both parents, who can then split it between them as they wish. I wonder if it will get enacted before November....
