Re: What am I entitled too expat

Tom's post 15 above, and Island Monkey's post 16, show your situation as possibly better than I had thought. Thanks to them.

Re: What am I entitled too expat

Today, 20th March 2020, the Swiss Federal Council announced various measures designed to save the fate of employers whose businesses are taking straing because of Corona. In that announcement, there was specific mention of company's not needing to fire their apprentices because of financial need.

Therefore, Justin,
  • if you are now out of work for the specific reason of your employer having terminated your apprenticeship, and
  • if this was because the employer no longer has enough money, specifically due to lack of business due to Corona,
then perhaps the termination of your contract can be reversed.

Once again, as others have said, I suggest you contact your [former] Lehrmeister (apprenticeship master) or manager. After this announcement, their situation will can be improved. You could ask them to put in a claim for financial relief from the Swiss government. Thereafter, they will be in a position to re-instate your apprenticeship contract, and once again to pay you your salary.

Even so, that may take a few weeks to organise. In the meantime try to make contact with one of the many organisations or advice centres recommended to you in your other threads.

Good luck!

In that case, I recommend that you speak to your Lehrmeister/Manager and say that you have now heard of these federal benefits for companies, so that they do not have to dismiss their staff.

The announcement said that they plan to work over the weekend, in the hope of being able to publicise, next week, some of the details of how to apply for this relief. In any case it is to be applied for by the employer, not by the employee.

Way to go! Are you sure the virus is the only reason you are scared of losing your job? Or might it have something to do with attitude?

Re: What am I entitled too expat

I know some people find Justin's way of posting annoying. I certainly do.
And Justin, I don't know why you post the way you do, and perhaps you don't even realise that you sometimes come across as rude, and sometimes as if you are not at all willing to get things together and work towards a solution.

On the other hand, I post suggestions here just in case it is not that Justin is unwilling, but perhaps that he is unable, to be pro-active and polite. We don't know. It doesn't harm me to keep posting reminding Justin about yet another advice centre or adding yet more information, just in case some part of it turns out to be of good use.

Justin, you have said repeatedly that you were hit over the head and that that event caused a lot of damage, presumably both physically and psychologically. Certainly if I had had someone attack me like that, I'd be traumatised. And I think I might be jumbled up, in my emotions, in my thinking and in my behaviour towards others.

Justin, in case that's what's going on with you, I encourage you to approach someone for help. Please, please, get yourself some help from a professional advice centre. You do not need to be alone and floating in the world without help. There are plently of places you could contact. Just start somewhere. I wish you well.
