RAV benefits

Hello, i will be working exactly 12 months in switzerland at the end of this month. I am working in the hotel, but it is kind of seasonal work so i was working 5 months 100%, 2 months 70%, and 5 months 50%. Now, because of the coronavirus hotel will be closed so i will be probably looking for another job, but as i have read if i was working one year i can apply for the rav benefits.

Which documents do i need to hand in?
The amount of benefit will be counted as below?
0,7*((5*1+0,7*2+0,5*5)/12)*my basic full time salary

Btw, i was living in the hotel, so i will be also looking for the room in the apratment/apartment. Will it be possible to find one, without a job? Do i need to show my contract or i just pay 3 months deposit and that's ok?

Thanks

Re: RAV benefits

Contact the RAV asap(via phone), finding a new job in the hotel industry in this situation will be next to impossible, nobody is hiring in this situation.

Finding a flat without a job will be tough aswell, you have to prove,that you are
able to pay the rent on time(in zurich the competition is ridicoulous).

Logistics like digitec are hiring(but the payment .....), they are searching 300 people for their logistics center in wohlen

You need your CV, Cancellation of the contract for the RAV ,aswell the proof that you applied for jobs (they reduced the minimum amount from 10/12 a month)

Good luck

Re: RAV benefits

You should contact the RAV Obwalden/ Nidwalden at this link:

https://www.rav-ownw.ch/home/kontakt/

For RAV registration the following documents should documents be available. RAV will advise more precisely what they need and may want you to post or email scanned copies to them:
1. Foreigner's identification card (B, L or C permit)
2. Passport
3. Work contract
4. Termination letter
5. AHV grey card or medical insurance card with AHV number
6. Complete application dossier, i.e., CV, reference letters and diplomas
7. List of applications made to-date
8. Registration of your current address

To gain an overview of the RAV processes, consider taking a RAV Zurich eLearning course (various languages):

https://awa.zh.ch/internet/volkswirt...formation.html

- At the course end, email the certificate to your own email for possible later use.

This EnglishForum link has numerous translated RAV documents, which are mostly available in D, F, and I at arbeit.swiss:

https://www.englishforum.ch/employme...ranslated.html

blackbird has given good input about possibly looking for a job in a logistics center. Indeed.ch is job search spider that you could use, e.g., search on logistik, english, etc.


Added:
1. Be sure to start sending applications immediately. Today is a fine day to start. Apply for more suitable jobs tomorrow and everyday thereafter.
2. Do not quit your job. Wait to see what your employer does. It is possible that your employer will put you on short-time-work (Kurzarbeit) and you will still be employed but not working.
3. If you are short of 12 months of working in Switzerland, you will need to obtain a PD U1 form from the employment office in the last EU country you worked in. This will support your claim for unemployment compensation in Switzerland, if needed.
4. Use RAV's job-room.ch to help locate a new position:
https://www.arbeit.swiss/secoalv/en/...ternehmen.html
https://www.job-room.ch/home/job-seeker

Re: RAV benefits

The Federal Council issued new regulations regarding RAV and Kurzarbeit (short-time work) as follows (translated):

"Coronavirus: Additional measures to support the economy

Bern, 25.03.2020 - On 25 March 2020, the Federal Council adopted further measures to cushion the economic consequences of the spread of the coronavirus. They concern compulsory job registration, unemployment insurance, short-time working compensation and occupational pensions. The new measures in favor of employees will lead to estimated additional costs for unemployment insurance of around CHF 600 million per month.

The new measures are designed in particular to reduce the administrative burden on both the applicants and the cantonal implementing bodies. The latter must be able to process applications for compensation as quickly as possible.

  • In the case of the requirement to register open jobs (STMP), the obligation to register and all associated tasks and obligations for employers and public employment services will be temporarily suspended. This will facilitate the recruitment processes, for example for medical personnel, the pharmaceutical industry, agriculture or logistics.
  • In the area of unemployment insurance (ALV), the submission of proof of work efforts is no longer required. The insured person must submit proof of work efforts no later than one month after the expiry of COVID 19 Regulation 2. The entire period of validity of this ordinance is considered the control period.
  • The first consultation and control meeting after registration with the municipality of residence or the RAV is temporarily to be held by telephone and within 30 days of registration.
  • In order to avoid termination of unemployment compensation (Aussteuerung), all eligible persons will receive a maximum of 120 additional daily allowances.
  • The framework period (Rahmenfrist) for the receipt of benefits is extended by 2 years if full receipt of unemployment compensation is not possible within the current framework period.
  • The period for advance registration for short-time work (KAE) will be abolished.
  • The approval period for short-time work is extended from 3 to 6 months. This will enable the number of applications to be minimized and thus speed up the approval procedure.
  • In addition, the regulation on compensation for short-time work for employers, who are similar to employees*, will be adapted to the Federal Council's wishes. As already communicated, they will receive CHF 3'320 for a full-time position. This is a lump sum that will not be reduced. "

* - Owners of small businesses, such as GmbHs, are being considered as employees and thus are eligible for CHF 3'320 per month for short-time work, although they would not normally be so.

Do I understand correctly, that you no longer have to search for work to claim RAV during the Corona measures..... but you still have to have a monthly [telephone] meeting? What will the meeting even discuss?

Does that mean that everyone who is currently registered with unemployment will have 120 "opened days / jours ouvrables" added to their credit, or this applies only the ones approaching the end of their unemployment benefits?

Interested by the statement on the framework period - I'm not currently registered unemployed but my framework period is open - is that extended in my case?
