Chomage calculation / unpaid leave

Hello,

I am on maternity leave and my company allows for three months unpaid leave (apart from the legal 16 weeks) . During this unpaid leave period all social contributions are paid (and heath insurance ) .
However since the company announced that they will fire many people I am not sure what to do . Will this unpaid leave period have an effect on the chomage amount calculation ? (I read that the amount is calculated 70% of the average of gross salaries of the last 6 or 12 months -whichever is best- this zero for three months will have a big impact). Or because the contributions are paid this period is exempt from calculation ? I don’t know what to do

Re: Chomage calculation / unpaid leave

It will reduce your average salary, it is not exempt from the calculation.

https://www.ge.ch/indemnites-chomage...-combien-temps

The insured earnings correspond to the average of your gross salary for the last 6 months preceding unemployment. If the average of your salary over the last 12 months gives a higher insured gain, it is the latter.

P.S. Congratulations on having a child. Now your indemnity will be 80%, rather than 70%. Usual salary limit applies.
