RAV and part time work (i.e., topping up 80%)


I've done a search, butcouldn't really find the information I needed - hopefully someone has been in asimilar situation and can help.

I'm aUK national, married to a Swiss citizen (we have 2 Swiss kids together) andhave been in continuous employment since Dec 2010 (microbiology, PhD level) Atthe end of the month (March ‘15), my contract is coming to an end (which I’mpretty pleased about – but that’s another story) and I’ve been looking foranother position since Summer ‘14. I’m leaving on very good terms and havecompleted all the outstanding work.

I work in a specialist areaand the only place interested in what I’m in Switzerland doing is my currentemployer. I think my chances of getting another microbiology position areslim…which I’m actually not too sad about.

I’ve also studied music andam a part-time guitar teacher (20 years’ experience and member of guitarteaching professional organisations). At present I have a couple of studentswhom I teach at the weekends, but I have more who would take lessons with me ifI have time…which I undoubtedly will have when I’m unemployed…see where this isgoing?

So, my questions:

1. If I took on a couple more students during myperiod of unemployment, how would the RAV view this (possible conflict withfull-time job hunt)? I’m assuming there’s a limit to how much I’m allowed toearn…

2. Owing to the paucity of suitable microbiologypositions, I may wish to develop my teaching business further. I’m yet to meetmy RAV adviser (meeting scheduled 8th April) and I’m very hesitantto start talking about a career change at out 1st appointment. Hasanyone done something similar?

Appreciate anyadvice/help!!

Re: RAV and part time work (i.e., topping up 80%)

Hi,
RAV should be positive about your part time work:
Sie haben eine (unselbstständige oder selbstständige) Arbeit ange- nommen und erzielen dabei ein Einkommen, das kleiner ist als Ihre Arbeitslosenentschädigung. Das erzielte Einkommen aus dieser Tätig- keit nennt man Zwischenverdienst. Ihre Arbeitslosenentschädigung (Kompensationszahlung) beträgt während mindestens 12 Monaten 80% oder 70% von der Differenz zwischen dem erzielten Zwischen- verdienst und dem versicherten Verdienst (vgl. Frage 6). Der Zwischen- verdienst muss orts- und berufsüblich entschädigt werden.
Es ist für Sie auf jeden Fall vorteilhaft, einen Zwischenverdienst zu erzielen. Damit:
• verbessern Sie Ihr Einkommen, denn der Zwischenverdienst und die Kompensationszahlung der Arbeitslosenversicherung sind zusam- men immer höher als die Arbeitslosenentschädigung;
• bietet sich Ihnen die Gelegenheit, weitere berufliche Erfahrungen zu sammeln sowie interessante Kontakte zu knüpfen. Es ist zudem leichter, aus einem bestehenden Arbeitsverhältnis heraus, eine neue Stelle zu finden;
• erwerben Sie neue Beitragszeiten.

I will be in a similar situation in August, send a PM if you want to chat about it

You can do as much work as you can, you will get topped up 80% of the difference between what you earned & 100% so you will earn more unless you earned 80% already in which case you don't have an insurance claim that month.

Is it always 80%, or only if you have kids?

80% with kids, 70% without.

Better to earn 69.9% / 79.9% rather than 70/80%, as holiday pay is deducted its often difficult to actually know what you have earned in any 1 month especially as the days of the month differ.

Re: RAV and part time work (i.e., topping up 80%)

You're entitled to 400 Taggelder, that's about 1.5 calendar years. By earning money you get paid less by the RAV but that in turn will extend your 400 days proportionately to the reduction.

It's as if you were entitled to a certain sum within two calendar years, which by default is paid out in work-day amounts equivalent to 0.25% of the total. But since you earn some money the work-day amount is reduced and thus the number of calendar days covered is extended proportionately.

Thanks to all those who replied - and apologies for the poor OP (written in MS Word, then copy/pasted over...lots of spaces missing...).

Some really useful information!
