Re: no escape from a fixed-term contract?

Hello everyone!

Iím new here, so sorry in advance, in case of repetition.
I do really hope that anyone here could help me with piece of advice.

So I work in Zurich as young professional ( itís a federal program between Switzerland and some countries for recent graduates who can work in Switzerland for up to 18 months. ) My first contact had fixed dates ( September-February ) and privation period of three months. Then, in the middle of February my employer offered me to stay for another half a year. We had to sign another contract with new dates as my salary and position were changed. I didnít pay a lot attention that I have my second Probezeit, even though it turned out it might be illegal. So I was unlucky and last week I got fired with a 7 days notice. His reason was - ďwe donít have enough workĒ. Iím super desperate as I planned my next half a year in Zurich ( half tent contract, have to pay my German courses, Abos and etc.) I checked Swiss laws and it doesnít seem like he is acting legal. Two time 3 months Probezeit. Breaching the fixed-term contract. Has anyone been in such a situation ? And is there any way to fix it? Additionally, it doesnít seem Iím eligible for employment benefits as I worked only for 6 months. Help
Thank you in advance!
