Re: RAV 8 months of a job

well, the RAV is doing not much, she have to do the applications for the jobs, the rav collects the data, when she meets the brief(10-15 applications per month at least), the rav process the payment.
If she done more then 2 years of unlimited work here in switzerland, she qualifies for 400 days of payment from the rav.
The rav is happy , when you are doing some form of work (temporär), so they can save money.(Bescheinigung Zwischenverdienst).
If she is successfull with her jobhunt, but the potential new job will be more then 2 hours one way away,you can reject the offer.
The financial aspect:
The potential new job must deliver more then 70% of the old job.
70% of the old job is what you get when you are on RAV.
If she get less then 70% offered in the potenial new job, she can reject the offer without any problems .

Re: RAV 8 months of a job

FAQs 1 and 2 at this link should answer your question regarding eligibility for unemployment compensation. Also see FAQ 5 to determine when a RAV-registered job-seeker must accept a job offer (English):

Re: RAV 8 months of a job

8 months contribution is not enough

''Contribution period
You have to show that you have paid contributions for at least 12 months during the past two years (qualifying period for contributions), before first applying, i.e. you have worked as an employee.''

and yes, RAV will insist that she looks for work and accepts anything deemed suitable, within reason.

Still worth going to see them for advice though.

Hi thank you, She worked continuously in Spain for seven years, another thing is that she resigned from her past job here in Switzerland at the beginning of the pandemic, can she ask for this RAV assistance anyways?

She has looked for work all this year, she sent a lot of job applications but with no success. she needs a german course to improve her german. she has a lot of work experience in Spain in her area but we think she is having difficulties because she needs better german

Re: RAV 8 months of a job

Did she go to RAV after she resigned last year? Because the payment will not be very much now as it is calculated from the last 12 or 24 months.

Maybe she can take Skype lessons? That can be cheaper sometimes

No, She didn't go to the RAV, she wants to go now to see if she can at least have a way to get german lessons, she resigned because the place she was working in doesn't take any measure related to the pandemic. and she was in the danger to get contaged.

Re: RAV 8 months of a job

If she can't proof these allegations, the rav will deny the payment(for arount 2 months).
I doubt, the rav will pay for a language course, because she has already not signed up on the rav.
Has she proof of her applications ready and applied even for temp jobs, to stay afloat ?
I am in the same situation, currently unemplyed, doing 2 temp jobs aswell my daily applications.
But the job market is currently under heavy pressure, when you are looking for a normal job.
If you are well qualified and a specialist and doing a highly sought after job , then there is no difference.
When you are above 45-50 years, you got a problem.
Nobody wants to hire older people in these conditions.
But the bills keep coming...

She can go to RAV in any case but RAV will check if she worked at least 12 months in the last 24 months, in CH or in EU. If she has left her job almost a year ago, I am not sure if she can fulfill this condition but if she goes to RAV, they can tell her.

Even if she registers with RAV, there is no guarantee that she will be sent to a free German course. If they don't think it will help her chances of finding a job, they might refuse to do so.
She has a lot of emails of job rejections telling her that they will love to contract her but she needs more german. she has more than 10 years of experience in her sector. I hear that if she registers at RAV and not find a job with a B permit she will be kicked out of the country in 3 months, that's why she hasn't registered before. I have a B permit and we plan to get married soon.

Re: RAV 8 months of a job

I am so sorry, it is a difficult situation. So her B permit was linked to her job, that she left many months ago? You need to seek urgent advice, and not sure EF is the best place. Good luck.

How is it crazy that if you lose your job you have to register with the RAV in order to get support? It isn't magic or telepathy, neither is it a service you can just show up at one year later and expect them to just jump into action as though that year gap didn't happen.

The rules are clear - to paraphrase your comment, if she doesn't like them she can always go back to Spain.

In any case, the best people to speak to are the RAV - maybe they can help, maybe they can't.

It is good then. She can show these rejection letters but the key here is to qualify for unemployment benefits by proving she has worked 12 months in the last 24.
Yes she can prove it

With a delay of at least three months.

Resigning is NEVER a good idea.
