General steps to take after being let go?

A friend of mine is about to be fired due to some merger, she worked in that company around 17 months.

The company sent her documents to sign, it's stating that she will be dismissed after the notice period (2 months) and they're sorry about these circumstances.

- As I've understood this is firing the person and is not this "mutual agreement" that can penalize or delay RAV compensation, right?

- Would she need to go to RAV to register this right away, or rather once she is actually/fully out of job?

- What happens with the holidays? Will these be compensated separately by the company normally?

- How humane is the entire RAV process in Vaud, does anyone have any experiences or stories to share? I hope they speak English..


Thanks

She needs to look for jobs, but only needs to go to RAV once actually unemployed.

She is being laid off and will not be penalized.
She has to start looking for work now and report at least 10 applications per month.
She has to report to the RAV at least 1 week before last day of work to prevent any gaps in start of compensation.
Vacation days are normally compensated.

Re: General steps to take after being let go?

Sorry to hear about your friend.

I second everything that has been said by other posters (she won't be penalised as long as she starts looking for a job now).

As per Swiss law, RAV/ORP have to conduct their meetings in the local language. Contrary to popular belief, having an interview in English is not a right.

Some RAV/ORP consultants will speak English, however they are not supposed to as, in case of controversy, they might get in trouble for failing to explain things properly, for example.

How much is this rule enforced? This really depends on the RAV/ORP office (for instance, a RAV/ORP in Zug might be more open as there will be more expats; however, the local RAV/ORP in the middle of nowhere in Canton VD, probably won't).

Not speaking the local language will also limit the amount of courses, etc. that your friend will be able to be enrolled in while unemployed (unless a French course is deemed necessary).

I hope your friend manages to find a new job soon.

Best of luck!

Re: General steps to take after being let go?

since today is 30st april - was that post with signature confirmation or regular one - and did she receive it or someone else - since termination starts at the first month following termination notice month - postponing that to tomorrow may make her 'employed' one more month when looking for a job
