Re: Notice period on fixed contract extension

Well you would like to know when the new contract starts and finishes?

It is a protection thing for employees, else in some branches people would just get a row of short term contract and can be fired as pleased even if they worked for 2years at the same spot.

Not looking up the laws, but I know of a bunch of EU countries that have this as law, and I always understood Switzerland also has such laws/rules.
Of course. Hence my mentioning it's a "grey zone" should an actual dispute every arise from it.

Theoretically speaking, it's two contracts.

In reality, it's probably one.

Switzerland has next to no employee protection, but at least there are notice periods that offer some protection, however limited. Officially, it's not even allowed to have multiple temporary contracts right after each other or rather if the number of contracts exceeds two or three (can't recall), the person could demand to be considered as a permanent employee with all respective rights and obligations.

Of course in reality, that happens roughly never.
