Is that as well for Frontaliers?
It seems there are provisions for that as well but not sure exactly what. Here some information:

Well in the English language being “fired” means losing your job because you’ve done something very wrong or you’re really shit at it. Being made redundant means the position is disappearing. One is not good for you future job search, the other is not your fault.
If he/she worked 9 years for the company and they decided to fire him because he/she was suddenly considered shit at the job, I think that would say more about the company than her/him.

Ive seen people on the "wind down", who are perfectly intellectually capable and used to be good at their job but just don't give a shit anymore and are downright dangerous.

I have seen companies with incompetent managment on the "wind down", who treat their employees like shit and are downright dangerous for the mental and physical health of the employees.

Also happens when the person is becoming too expensive and they want to bring in someone younger and cheaper.

Hello Evryone

i am working since 9years in a company based in basel.

last week had a meeting with HR telling me that the contract was going to be over.

i hade an other meeting for signing the paper that is saying "you have been invited for a meeting today and have been informed that we will terminate your employment agreement as of 28.02.21"

so i wonder if that is saying that they are fireing me or if its a amicable breach of contras ?

thanks in advance for your answers!
that thing you signed is just for them to have a paper trail that they did indeed tell you "we terminate your contract".

There is no need for that but it makes sense to have it.

What's important is that they wrote "we are terminating your contract", so you can get unemployment payments.

This is a regular termination so no reason is needed.

A termination effective immediate with no notice needs to be grounded. This is different from terminating a contract in a regular way and sending the person on garden leave because you don't need them at all.
