if you were paying your unemployment insurance in the past, you are entitled to draw on them. It's not a benefit, you are claiming on insuarance. You'll get 70% of your last salary, the duration will depend on the time you've worked.

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

In any case, you have to sign up with the RAV as soon as you get the notice or have serious reasons to beleive that your job is at risk. If failed to sign up quickly, a penalty (payment withholded or reduced) is possible.

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

For Maximium pay out you need to have worked at least 18 months in last 24, 12 months in last 24 is minimum requirement.

Pay is calculated on last 6 or last 12 months earnings, if you work less hours in the final months be warned, that is the time to register with RAV.
If you wait 3 months before claiming your last 3 months pay is calculated as ZERO.

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

you get 70% of your gross salary of the last 6-12months.

BUT do you have the standart deductions(quellnsteuer, AHV/IV/EO, Pensionkaese etc) applying to the new salary figure?

thanks

Up to a maximum (salary) of chf126000.

It seems that lots of people fail to mention this - is that just a sign that I'm out of touch, and there are a lot of people here earning less than that?

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

I'm on a non-EU B permit as well. Been working here 3 years at the same job. I'm potentially about to take a leap into contracting. Does contracting work the same way as a permanent position when it comes to RAV?

I've also asked a couple related questions here:
Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

If anyone has the time/knowledge to answer these, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

As long as you pay into the insurance monthly off your paycheque, then contracting is not different in eligibility for RAV than a permanent position. If you're contracting through an agency, then should be automatically taken care of as you are actually a permanent employee to them.

Re: Question about RAV unemployment benefits.

Does this "unemployment pay" become payable if the worker left for say UK,
after giving due notice to the Employer and RAV - if so for what period of
time and who in UK/EU Country, will be the Authority responsible to effect Payment?

So you want to quit your job and continue to get paid 70% of your salary while having some fun in the UK?

In short: No.

I find the idea you have in mind plainly anti-social. Fortunately are enough checks in place to make sure that people like you cannot easily cheat the honest part of the society.
