Not renewing my Contract voluntarily/ Chomage

Hi there,

I have been working for over 18 months on a contract and it is coming up for renewal in 2 months and to be honest I think that it is time to move on as the project has moved into another phase, requiring different skills. Psychologically I would like to take the initiative and say I will not renew the contract myself, but does this have an impact on my eligibility to claim for chomage and am I entitled to it? (Live and Work in Vaud)

Any advice well received !

If the offer and you voluntarily do not take it up you can have a penalty of up to 90 (calendar) days before chomage start paying you.

Thanks Mike

If they decide not to renew my contract, then would I be eligible?

If you give up your job voluntarily, you might end up with nothing.

Quitting your job and RAV

Have a look at Odile's excellent thread here about that:

Re: Not renewing my Contract voluntarily/ Chomage

Hey Swissophile, could you tell us what happened at the end in your case?

The info could be useful for some people who are in a similar position as you were before, to wave their decisions. I am currently one of those people.

Thanks for any update.

Re: Not renewing my Contract voluntarily/ Chomage

Sorry for the delay engineer 365…I haven't been monitoring my messages too much lately.

Well as an update, I followed the advice not to resign and they extended my contract for one more month until the end of July with a view to it then terminating. I must admit this was a little painful, as the gossipers were out saying I'd been fired, which can affect you psychologically, when looking for a new job…but decided to play it safe.

In any case, I now have proof in writing that they terminated the contract. I will find out this week whether I have another contract I interviewed for recently so may not have to go for chomage, although I have been told it is wise to register before the last day of your employment.

I will let you know if I do go to the chomage office and keep you in the loop.
