Re: Paid holidays and coronavirus

A paragraph at the below link should help to explain 1. (translated):

"Holidays during short-time work
The employee may take holidays during short-time work. However, this must be paid 100% by the employer and may not be accounted for by short-time work."

https://www.vol.be.ch/vol/de/index/a...zahlung_DE.pdf

For 2., you are still an employee, although the wages are being paid to your employer by the government. As an opinion, I would expect that your employer would set aside vacation pay based on the average number of hours and average pay for this period, which I think would be 80%, i.e., you wouldn't accrue as fast as before.

Good luck!
