Temporary / Permanent contract, Notice period


I have been employed with my present employer in IT industry since more than 4+ years.

However, for first 4 years they only issued me annual temporary contract, with 1 month notice period.

Only last time, they issued me open ended contract still with 1 month notice period and eventually they have terminated my employment due to cost cutting topic.

I have open B permit. So it is possible to work for any employer / get RAV benefit until I get new job. I am Non EU, in Switzerland since almost 6 years.

My Questions are :-

- Is it allowed by law / regulations to issue multiple temporary contracts ?
I heard that after 3 years ( 3 temporary contracts ), company must make open ended contract.

- Is it ok to have 1 month notice period with open ended contract ? Even though I worked for same employer for 4 years already.

Please share appropriate feedback...

Re: Temporary / Permanent contract, Notice period

I suspect as you have worked every month for more than a year your entitled to 2 months notice, the RAV will advise you.
