Transfer of unemployment benefits to EU

Hello all,


Assume that one is employed under unlimited contract with 3 months' notice period. One wants to have employment relationship ended, and then one would like to leave Switzerland while transferring unemployment benefits to his EU country (those 3 months that one can transfer).


The only thing known so far is that one is entitled to transfer, if one

  • have been registered as an unemployed jobseeker with the employment services in the country where you became unemployed for at least 4 weeks (exceptions can be made)
source: https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizen...s/index_en.htm


Therefore, one doesn't need to receive 1 month of unemployment benefits in Switzerland, but only has to be registered as an unemployed jobseeker.


Now, I would like to know, how on the situation effect following circumstances, namely in benefits entitlement and timing manner (i.e. how fast can one perform transfer, depending on the circumstances)



a) one quits job and employer agrees to let him go without having to work for notice period
b) one is fired and employer doesn't require to work the notice period
c) one is fired and employer doesn't require to work the notice period, plus he pays him out 3 months' salary
d) one quits job and employer agrees to let him go without having to work for notice period, but he gets paid out 3 months' salary

My understanding is that you must have received RAV payments for a month (albeit 4 weeks) as far as "(exceptions can be made)" my advice would be to check that part out very carefully and if you qualify have written proof from relevant departments.

If so, then OP will have an issue with A and D as it will take time before you get any payment due to having quit the job yourself

my guess is that even being fired and then agreeing with employer to be allowed to leave immediately, may impose sanctions, as 3month's notice period would be cancelled willingly. Any bonuses received may add additional penalty.
