Re: Leaving CH and coming back - Unemployment benefit

Well if you are EU passport holder, Switerland will "pay" you 3 months to try to find work in your own country. It might even be 6 months. It is Switzerland that pays, not the UK. And that thru Unia/RAV. Now if you just leave, and show up in the UK, then the EU being compliant with one another, and if you worked enough in CH, then the UK will give you unemployment benefits as if you had been working in the UK prior. Recently.
What?

If you work in Switzerland and pay into the Swiss system and are eligible for Swiss unemployment then you move to the EU/etc, you will collect Swiss unemployment at the Swiss rate for three months in that new country. Passport is not relevant only that you are legally resident in that new country.

In the case of the OP, he will be paying into the UK system. So if he leaves the UK and returns to Switzerland, he will be eligible* for UK unemployment benefits which he can get paid out in any of the countries that are in the agreement. Currently that includes Switzerland. But he will be given the amount he would get from the UK.

(*we assume, not sure what the rules are for the UK. Maybe quitting your jobs does not qualify there)
