Pregnancy and work

Hi everybody
I'm working in Zurich since November 2010 at 100%.
I'm planning a pregnancy but I have no idea how the law works here.
If I have some problem during the pregnancy (I hope not but you never know) and the doctor say that I should stay at home for example from the 6 month on, I will get the full salary for all the remain month of pregnancy?

And then for the 16 weeks after birth? Is that correct?

If my pregnancy will be normal until when I have to go to work? Nine month??

Thank you fir your help!

:-)

Re: Pregnancy and work

1) Usually maternity leave only starts at birth, so a pregnant employee may be expected to work until the end of her pregnancy.
2) If you are ill or have complications beforehand (and need bedrest for instance) that usually is not considered maternity leave but normal sick leave (so what will apply is your employer's sick leave policy, or if there is none, Swiss labor law)
3) you are protected for 16 weeks after your pregnancy, meaning that you can not be laid off during or for 16 weeks after. That does not mean you are automatically entitled to 16 weeks of paid leave.
4) Unless your employer has a specific maternity leave policy or depending on the canton you are living in, again Swiss labor law will apply.

Perhaps things have changed since zee olden days of long long ago....
Not sure, you'll need to check your contract and labor law.
