cleaning lady - gone beserk with bills??

Help needed - not sure if this is the right space. My cleaning lady wants me to pay her out 3 months notice (and yes I stupidly signed a contract with 3 months notice). I though that she had worked the months and despite me paying for the work has now issued me with a bill for a further 1118 chf.


Can i report her to the police for fraud? or do I have another way of stopping her. Its very easy for her to report me as a bad debtor and then i have bad credit.

Help ....

I am not sure who gave the notice, but if it is contractual, you are bound to fulfill your obligations unless there is a mutual settlement, ideally written that does not give arise to a similiar action in the future for claims.

I don´t see how fraud is intertwined here as it is contractual. Bad faith, perhaps.

Who ended the contract and was there 3 months notice given..?

Example:

If your cleaning lady gave notice today that she wanted to finish working for you she would then need to work the next 3 months to fulfill the contract.

If you gave your cleaning lady notice today that you wanted to terminate her employment you would then allow her to continue working the next 3 months but if you gave her notice to leave (effective immediately) then you would be liable to pay her her next 3 months salary.
