Right to chômage as Anobag

I wonder if anyone can help - my husband appears to have had a mental breakdown, he is signed off work for a few weeks but I can't see him being in a position to return to work when his sick note ends. My question is - is he entitled to Chomage. He's started a new job 4 months ago as an ANOBAG and with a B permit. Prior to that he was permanently employed with a Swiss employer and had a CDL permit for 2 years. We are from the UK.
Is he entitled to chomage? What happens if he quits his job because he is too unwell to go back? I'm aware that you can claim more chomage if you are fired vs resigning.

Re: Right to chômage as Anobag

If he can't work, then no unemployment payments, regardless.

Unemployment payments require that you are able to work.

Sorry.

Of course that makes sense. Well I suppose he could quit his job and not disclose his mental health problems, and claim chomage, just have to hope he doesn't get offered a job until he's well enough to work

Why would his sicknote end if he is still sick and cannot work?

He has to report on a fairly regular basis to RAV authorities/employees, i really doubt if this would work.......certainly not on a long term basis.


If he quits voluntarily, then there are quite strict penalties.


As Tom pointed out, unless you are 100% ready to be employed, RAV will not consider you, unfortunately.


Maybe consider going away somewhere quiet for a few weeks to recover, try the mountains, wonderful for peace, quiet and reflection.

Being on the RAV is a job in itself. Writing 10 genuine applications a month needs custom cover letters and targeted resumes, completing online registration forms etc… in addition to perhaps attending courses, trial periods with potential employers etc. it depends on your partner’s circumstances and what his RAV councilor thinks.

If he is having difficulties dealing with the work situation I’m not sure this is a way forward.

His doctor might even be able to prescribe it under the health insurance. I have known a few cases where this was possible over the years.

Re: Right to chômage as Anobag

Generally, Anobag employees are eligible for unemployment compensation providing employment length requirements are met from this and previous jobs.

If the OP's husband is not able to return to work and a doctor agrees, his employer might transfer him to the insurance company providing short-term disability (Krankentaggeld) for up to two years.
- This insurance is voluntary and an Anobag employee might not necessarily have it. The OP needs to check her husband's employment documents to determine this.

If terminated by the employer, the OP's husband will need to provide RAV with a doctor's note that he is able to work xx%. Then, assuming the OP's husband meets the employment length and other criteria from his Anobag employment and previous job, he should be able to register with RAV.
- The OP should also determine whether the previous employer paid into the Swiss unemployment insurance fund (ALV) from his wage statements.

For more information on RAV, please see this link (English):
