Re: New employer wants me to start before end of current contract

Nonsense. Your current company is not looking out for your best interest.

Give notice to your company and let your shares vest.

Start with your new company during your vacation (and wait with updating linkedin until AFTER you have ended your employment with your current company).

That way you will get everything you have earned.

Keep in mind, companies also hire new people and then get rid of an incumbent by sending him/her on garden leave. Treat them the same way.

Do NOT do that. Very very bad advise. You could get in serious trouble!

Per swiss code of obligations, all IP created during your employment belongs to your "old" employer (certain exceptions apply, but lets keep is simple here). Your new employer would not be so happy if your "old" employer make a claim on the IP of your work results at your "new" employer.
