Employer paying home rent costs

Has anyone else seen this news report, and is it likely to be legit? This could be quite a can of worms across Switzerland and any other countries that pursued this...

Why would it not be legit? It was a court case some days ago.

And yes we've read it, and decided to just ignore it given the current times with Corona.

Re: Employer paying home rent costs

This Federal Supreme Court judgement (from April 2019) was a specific case of an employee who permanently had no work station at their employer's premises and who was obliged to work from home, and use their home office space as an archive, thus relieving the employer from costs relating to having premises.

It has no impact for employers who provide a place of work for their employees, and no compensation is due if teleworking:

- Is voluntary - for example at the request of the employee when the employee has an appropriate working space on the employer's premises

or

- Is strongly recommended by authorities as a measure against COVID-19, and is therefore time-limited by definition
