Re: What does the Swiss say about actul legal written notices

What the OP is asking is, can an office announcement such as "We have no budget after March" be considered as notice to terminate? You're saying yes I guess.
AFAIK this won't be a valid dismissal. However "We have no budget after March, we will no longer employ you" or simply the classic "You are fired" is one.

Nevertheless the legal minimum or contractual notice periods (if longer than the legal minimum) fully apply. Those periods must be the same for employer as well as employee.


Laws: Code of Obligation starting at Art. 319 https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...ndex.html#a319

and your employment contract. For some industries there are legal prescribed collective employment contracts https://www.seco.admin.ch/seco/de/ho...vertraege.html

The (collective ) employment contract might prescribe that a dismissal must be in written form and sent by registered mail.
