How to get a clear picture of entitled Swiss Benefits before end of contract?

Hi All,

Happy to connect.
I have been reading quite a handful of threads and I am still unclear on the best method to evaluate what Swiss Benefits am I entitled based on my current indefinite Consultant contract, which will end Dec 2019.
Knowing my current consultancy employer, they will not raise a finger until the end of 2019 in order to prepare the exit.


To give a bit of context:

- I am an EU procurement professional, working in Switzerland under a 5 year B permit, since Feb 2018. Would love to continue my professional career in Switzerland and in the event that I do not find another opportunity by Dec, I am currently assessing what would my alternatives.

Hopefully, some of you would be able to help guide me towards the best local authorities to contact.


Thank you in advance for any advice.

Do you mean it was an indefinite contract, but it has been terminated for end December? If so, did you end it, or did the employer? This is relevant if you might have to claim unemployment benefits (RAV).

Some countries know something like a "termination benefit", but this is not standard practice in Switzerland, except if one is in the very top echelons of management, and gets a golden handshake just to go away.

Re: How to get a clear picture of entitled Swiss Benefits before end of contract?

To clarify on your previous points:

1. My standard contract is indefinite.
2. My company will end their consultancy agreement with my client at the end of the year, hence I will most probably receive a notice letter informing me about the closure of my onsite engagement.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Is there any risk if I go proactively to the Immigration Office or RAV and consultant them on this future work situation? My experience with Immigration is that they get very fussy when they hear about the termination of contract and start asking me loads of questions, mainly linked to my work permit. I would want to avoid any extra headaches.

Re: How to get a clear picture of entitled Swiss Benefits before end of contract?

Are you from an EU country that still has quota? If not, unemployment or RAV should not be an issue. (Not sure if that has an impact if OP is from a "quota" country, as that sjhould be over and done with per 01.07.2019?)
