Thank you very much for the answers.

I am thinking of visiting my local RAV office to gather some information. Unfortunately, I am living in Vallis. I speak German but I am living in a French speaking city.

In RAV either in German or French speaking part, the people should speak both languages, right? Maybe English also?

Do you think is better to send an email first or go directly to the offices as a first approach?
what information you would like to ask at RAV? whether to get fired or quit? that would be a disaster, as if you do end up going there later (because of unemployment), they might say that you got fired and deny benefits for a certain period.

Ask what papers are needed, what is the procedure, see if I need a translator etc.

I'd send an email. That way they can forward it to a German or English speaker, who will then reply. Though I'd postpone the not-so-broad questions until after the language issue got sorted out.

You got that backwards, quitting gets you denied benefits for a certain period, not being fired!

Not sure going to RAV is a giood idea. They are unlikely to say 'Oh yes, resign and we will pay you."

Re: Quit or get fired

You wrote this some weeks ago. Have you spoken to your employer about the situation at the client? Maybe they can support you.

If not, then spend your spare time and energy on looking for a new job. I have found the process of searching, and filling applications, etc to be quite therapeutic when a work situation has turned sour.

Also, applying for a job while still in employment gives you a slight psychological edge when negotiating remuneration package with prospective new employers.

Cheers,
Nick

Thanks Nick,
This is actually what I am doing. Situation has not changed. So I am trying to find a new opportunity. But I asked for RAV etc just to be prepared for the worst scenario. I hope and try not to reach that point.

Ok, I understand your point. Actually what is important for me is to "discover" if I can communicate with them.
My town is French-speaking and I speak German (I know poor choice, but when I came here I didn't know the area quite well and sure did not hope to find myself in this position), so I want to figure out if they have German speaking agents (I am too optimistic for English )

I was in Ticino once at SBB station. As I can speak German/English but no Italian. On starting the conversation the lady at counter smiled and said she would prefer English

So, you know never know if RAV advisor in French speaking area might say the same

Isn't Sierre bi-lingual, French and German ?

If you are currently working with a medical professional, they can actually write a letter to RAV to state that you had to quit for your health & it could avoid the usual 2-3 month penalty for quitting instead of being fired.

If I were you, I would consider taking two weeks of medical leave to collect your thoughts on the best way forwards. I've been where you are, I know how hard it is and I wish you all the best!

Re: Quit or get fired

OP! Have you discussed this problem with your employer?
Maybe they can find you another client.
Otherwise start looking for something else before quieting.
