Recommendation of a lawyer please!

I have just recently been fired by my employer and apparently the termination contract is not favourable for me. I need a lawyer who can support the negotiation process. I would very much recommend if you can let me know a cost efficient labor expert lawyer based in Zurich please!

Re: Recommendation of a lawyer please!

A while ago, someone suggested me the website of the swiss association of lawyers (http://www.sav-fsa.ch/Home-EN.1.0.html?&L=3) but never needed one in the end. There is a search function and some pages are in english so you might find someone there. Obviously it is better to have been recommended a specific lawyer. Hope everything gets sorted out for you and good luck.

Re: Recommendation of a lawyer please!

First, check if you have legal insurance (sometimes it is included in your home insurance, health insurance, or car insurance) because that can often cover the costs of your lawyer.

Second, since your living in Zurich you may want to give http://www.advofinder.ch/english a try. Its essentially a matching service. You describe your problem and interested lawyers will respond.

Finally, you can also contact me directly. I work regularly together with several labor law lawyers at my firm.

Re: Recommendation of a lawyer please!

I might be a little bit late, however, there is a relatively new walk-in legal 'clinic' in Zürich:

http://www.rebaz.net/home/our-services

The location is near Limmatplatz in Zürich (tram 4, 13, 17 as far as I know), legal consulting via Skype is available too.

Re: Recommendation of a lawyer please!

In Ch the employer & employee are on an even footing, basically either party may give notice if they desire & no compensation needs to be paid.
The notice period is defined by law unless a longer term is agreed.
