Kurzarbeit when ANOBAG? Can a foreign company apply for kurzarbeit

Hi,

I've been working 100% as an economist for a company based in the UK for over 16 months now. The company doesn't have a base in Switzerland, which makes me an ANOBAG according to the Swiss legislation. I'm not a freelancer, I have a 100% contract and pay my AHV, IV, EO and ALV contributions (50% paid by the company).

Because of the coronavirus crisis, the company wants to reduce my hours to 50%. My question is, can a foreign company apply for kurzarbeit (short-time work scheme)? If the answer is yes, then what's the procedure?

Thanks a lot,
Carlos.

At the risk of being wrong, it would seem that your company could apply for Kurzarbeit for its sole Swiss employee (you) following the standard procedures.

The Ct. Zurich Office for Economy and Labour website has a step-by-step guide to apply for Kurzarbeit at this link (English):

You/ your company will need to complete a Voranmeldung form and then have it signed and stamped by a company representative. It is available as an Excel document at the above link in German.

Thank you Mullhollander.

I will call the office of economy and labor tomorrow, and if I can't get an answer I will just tell my employer to try and then I'll provide an update over here in case there are other ANOBAGs in a similar situation.

Carlos.
