Fired under Corona virus crisis

Hi all

I’m currently working at a small swiss company and because of the new virus crisis we got information from our boss that we will close the company from Monday 23 March.
Somehow all employees got information that the plan is that we will get all fired and the company will officially close, and maybe reopen after a few mounts!!

I want to ask from help for someone who knows, is my boss able to fire me because of the crisis. I have heard somewhere that no one can be fired in this kind of situation but i need to have prove for tomorrow’s meeting with the boss.

Thanks to all
I hope for fast response

Re: Fired under Corona virus crisis

He could even fire you for no reason at all. But he has to respect the agreed upon cancellation terms in the contract.

Get the details about all of such tomorrow from your employer and than contact RAV (and expect a long cue..)

Re: Fired under Corona virus crisis

First, take a quick look as the Swiss civil code, title 10 - the employment contract (articles 319 to 362) https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...l#id-ni16-ni33

Now a short list on the things you're entitled to in the order of articles:

Art 330 letter of reference : the employee may at any time request from the employer a reference concerning the nature and the duration of the employment relationship, the quality of his work and his conduct.

Art 331 2nd pillar : At the request of the central office for ‘Pillar 2’ (occupational pension) insurance, the employer must supply any information available to him that might facilitate the location of persons entitled to dormant assets or of the institutions that manage such assets.

Art 335 End of employment relationship : The party giving notice of termination must state his reasons in writing if the other party so requests. So you're entitled to a letter explaining why you were fired.

Art 335c End of employment relationship, notice periods: The employment relationship may be terminated at one month’s notice during the first year of service, at two months’ notice in the second to ninth years of service and at three months’ notice thereafter, all such notice to expire at the end of a calendar month.

How long have you been working there?
  1. Less than a year: if you get the written notification tomorrow you're entitled to your salary until 30.04.2020
  2. 2 to 9 years, salary until 31.05.2020
There are more articles, but I think the most important is the notice of termination in written from your employer (needed for unemployment benefits) and clarify until when you get paid even if you don't go to work.

If the employer fires the OP, s/he should contact RAV by phone to determine next steps. Although I do not know specifically about RAV Biel, RAV Zurich offices are closed to the public, including for registration. Please see this link (German):

I ment cue on the phone, figured it be common sense by now to not spontaneously go visit anything government or health related.
