Sick pay calculation


My daughter has an employment contract with a base number of working hours/ week at 21 but additional hours to be worked at the request of management. The company is a Swiss company. For the last year she has worked an average of 36 hours/week and has paid AHV etc on these hours.

A month ago she was sick for 4 weeks (with a doctor's note) and her employer has paid her 80% of the 21 base hours for the 4 week period. I have been told that the sick pay calculation is based on the AHV contributions made and therefore i believe that the payment should be 80% of her average working hours per week.

Has anyone any experience of this? Is there some official body that she can talk to?
