Termination notice period. Can it be several months by contract?

Hello,

I have read that the termination notice period by default in Switzerland is 1 month during the first year after the trial period, then 2 months and after 10 years 3 months.

Now, could it be stated in a contract that the employee has a notice period of several months? for example 6?

I haven'f found if that could be signed/enforced or would be considered illegal.

Many thanks.

Yes. In fact this is reasonably common for middle management grade and above.

As above. Additionally, both parties must be subject to the same cancel period

However, upon mutual agreement the contract can be terminated anytime, with conditions also subject to mutual agreement. This is called Abrede in German, requires an Abredevertrag; no idea about the French terms.
