short term contract -unemployment benefit?

My husband got a contract for a 6month duration at a good company. However, there is no guarantee that they will keep him longer. We are not sure what to do. In case he cannot find another job after 6 month, would he be able to get unemployment benefits (he has worked the last 4 yrs in EU and Switzerland), even if he knew in advance that its only a temporary contract?

Thanks for all your answers.

Re: short term contract -unemployment benefit?

a good question, I would think the answer is yes but am not certain. As far as I know the income of the last two years is used to calculate benefits.

If you have worked a minimium of 12 months in the last 24 months you will be entitled to benefits. Insured salary is based on the LAST 12 months earnings, even if you only worked 6 months the total salary will be devided by 12 to arrive at a monthly amount.
