Re: COVID - Government Aid for small businesses

Further to post 12 above, the NZZ reported yesterday that the Swiss government is looking for a solution to provide financial support to on-call employees who have widely varying hours of work. Translation of relevant paragraph:

"On Monday, a federal representative confirmed upon request that short-time work compensation is not currently planned for on-call employees who have had a recent strongly fluctuating degree of employment hours. The stated reason: in such cases, the authorities simply could not assess whether a strong decline in the level of employment was due to "natural" fluctuations or to "genuine" short-time work. However, according to the respondent, the federal government is currently considering a solution for such cases on the basis of a lump-sum (pauschal) compensation payment."
