Re: Released from work during maternity leave

In Switzerland, holiday is not paid out but must be held during the notice period except in extraordinary circumstances. It sounds like the company is offering a better deal but "available for request" sounds vague (I assume 7 weeks of vacation is 7 weeks of 2 days due to 40% employment).

The rules are that you must look for a job as soon as you know you are leaving your current one and you must be able to document that you have searched for a job. I've seen other places on here that you should start looking for a job after the 7th week of birth in case that you are unemployed and receive benefits. So I would ensure to have some documentation of a job search for RAV but I doubt that they will request that she go to interviews until after the 7th week from the birth. But I would confirm with RAV.
