Moving Day Entitlement

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, I've searched and cant find the info anywhere

We have recently moved house and my employer "gave" me a day off for the move. My husband's employer on the otherhand has deducted a day off his vacation. Can someone clarify for me if my employer is generous or if by swiss law, we are entitled to one day off for a "déménagement".

Thanks
Nats

Re: Moving Day Entitlement

I am quite sure that swiss law entitles you to one day for moving.

Gimme a few mins - going to try and locate the links

Re: Moving Day Entitlement

Found the link

http://www.ch.ch/private/00029/00038...x.html?lang=en

In the 2nd bullet point is this :-

• You are entitled to at least one day for moving house. For long-distance moves you may in some cases be given more time off.

Re: Moving Day Entitlement

I think that "entitlement" is based on common practice, not something guaranteed as such by the text of law.

Sorry Shorrick - I am guaranteed by my brother in law, father in law and wife (all swiss) that it is part of swiss federal law.

The one day is what it gives you - if you get more than 1 day from your employer then that is down to the goodwill of the employer.

Could be. I just read the Obligations Code again and the only day to be specifically mentioned is Sunday. But maybe I've missed it.

Hello!

Could anyone please provide a factual response, a specific point of reference where to look at this Moving day, or entitlement day perhaps where one can see the various industries and categories.
Thank you very much!

There's no such thing. Check your employment contract.

"Events that concern you personally
You are entitled to take time off work due to the following events.During a limited amount of time there is no obligation to make up for lost working time.

Reasons listed in the law

  • Accident
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Legal obligations (e.g. military service)
  • Public office
Additional reasons
  • Marriage
  • Birth of your own children
  • Death of a close relative
  • Moving home, etc.
Time off is granted for the above events, however, the amount of time is not specified by law. Check your employment regulations to find out what rules apply in your company."

Nice Thank you Medea Fleecestealer for your fast help.
You mean that if is not written in my contract as a "benefit" or so I will not get it?
Who comes here from another country knowing about this day off as a possibility? Instead I would like to find out, if possible if the law specifically talks about it and who is or is not entitle to have it. Think I was rambling...anyway

Here is where I am getting confused.
This page reads:
Absences from work

>>>In certain cases, employees are entitled to paid leave.<<<<


  1. Could anyone know the specifics or these "certain cases"
  2. The specif Law and perhaps if there is where to look at each industry
  3. The Canton is Zurich.
Guys I went to the a renoun Book Store in downtown Zurich to buy the Labor Swiss Law, a friend wrote down the name for me, and asked if there was an Italian or English version and no one knew what that was! Gulp!
So I have no way of finding out unless someone around here knows.


Thanks
C

Re: Moving Day Entitlement

Yes, the ones listed above under "reasons listed in the law" - you are entitled to paid leave for these. The "additional reasons" are optional I believe and depend entirely on your employer - which is why you need to check your employment contract. Some employers will pay you for them and others won't.

However, if you go to the bottom of the page I linked to there's "Information on absences from work - display info". If you click on that and type in Zurich you'll get this.

Whether it will help or not I don't know.
