Termination of employment and time for the employee to look for new job

Hi,


If an employee is sent the termination notice, is s/he allowed a reasonable amount of time, while still employed, to be able to look for a new job, go for interviews..etc?


Is this defined/mentioned in the code of obligations or wherever?



Cheers

Re: Termination of employment and time for the employee to look for new job

See Art. 329 Abs. 3 OR :

"3 In addition, he (the employer) must allow the employee the customary hours and days off work and, once notice has been given to terminate the employment relationship, the time required to seek other employment."

This generally means up to 1/2 day per week for job interviews. This time off, however, does not have to be paid.

See this 20 Minuten article for more details (German):
