My Boss took my Salary!!

Hello Forum!

As i mentioned on title, I really need help from you guys..

It's desperate request...

Until April 2015 i was worked a company in Zurich.

I worked 16months and it's Travel Agency.

Just for understanding,,

I have B permit and for working it's no problem at all...


The fact is like this;

One day my boss requested to me that i should make a reservation at Hotel for 4 days. After that I made a reservation and reported by Email with reservation confirmation.

After that (the last week of the contract) I got call from the Hotel that customer made No-show. I was surprised and directly asked to boss what happened with customer, because customer is business partner of my boss.

Boss answered that he already noticed to me for cancelling face to face,
moreover he sent email to me.

However he never told me face to face, moreover i don't receive any single Email from him.

I requested to him that please make "forward" from his sent list.
but his answer was "deleted" no more email excisting.

Then he wanted to me pay for the Hotel (EUR 666.00)

The reason was : Because i made mistake. If i am not pay the amount he will take the money from my salary which is totally crazy.

He forced to me pay with my credit card until contract day.
However I only listened and answered that I can not pay.

Finally i got my last salary and around CHF 720.00 was missing.


I knew that these acting are absolutely preposterous.
Even Ex coworker also took his monthly salary !
(He is Swiss.........)

I can not belive HOW it happend in Switzerland. Even if i made a
mistake they can not take my salary without asking/permission.

Last week, after checked my salary i sent a letter
that my salary was missing. pls send to me right amount(100%).
i got answered from company that that amount was right due to Hotel

I don't know how i act to them and what is best way to do.
Honestly I am so angry with their acting not only money!!!

it's absurdly incorrect and want to against them.

Please help me and I asked to Gemaindehaus that for Stadt Lawyer.
But i have to wait until end of June.

Thank you in advance for your help..

Re: My Boss took my Salary!!

what evidence do you have? Have a look at the sticky for the Betreibung process.

Re: My Boss took my Salary!!

are you unionized? they provide free juridical protection for free if you've been part of one for long enough.
You can take legal action, but get good counseling first because I don't know if he can sue you for damages or something, and if you have to pay for the lawyer it may well exceed 700 chf.
