Line Manager --> HR --> Solicitor of your choice.

Re: Salary dispute with employer

Tried HR and Line manager for the past 9 months.
The company I work for is a Swiss subsidiary of an Indian IT Company.
Is there anything I can report via the local government?
Your responses are greatly appreciated.

Re: Salary dispute with employer

If you suspect them of contravening labour laws, consult a specialist labour law solicitor. However, for salary disputes, lodge a written claim to HR, recorded delivery and threaten them with a debt recovery action.

Re: Salary dispute with employer

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Labour Court (Arbeitsgericht) and although I had to wait nearly 3 hours as I turned up late they were really helpful. Is in German only (I took a friend who spoke German with me).

http://www.gerichte-zh.ch/organisati...sauskunft.html

Legal advice of the Labour Court
Hours:Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 08.30 bis 11.00 and 13.30 bis 16.00 clock
(No appointment necessary but it is expected there will be long waiting times)
Location:Zurich District Court, Labour Court, Wengistrasse 30, Ground Floor
(Telephone information on 044 248 28 45)
For whom? Maximum 12 people per half day.
In German only, please be accompanied by a German speaking person.

I wrote a letter to my employee asking them to pay my outstanding salary in 30 days or I would take further steps with the Justice of the Peace Office (Friedensrichter). Have not yet had a response from my employee.

I meant to say I wrote a letter to my EMPLOYER (not employee) but not had a response from them yet.
