Re: Postdoc losing money due to exchange rate

Postdocs who have a swiss salary are still eligible for RAV (they look at your income in last 2 years), and then judge just like for anyone else.

Thanks for comments! The salary is written in CHF in the contract and I can't see anything about changes in exchange rates written in it. But, I'll let someone more skilled in German read the contract together with me.

Thanks dandi! I'll check if there is anything written about founding sources being available for the project, but I doubt. But I agree, there must be a mutual agreement before the salary changes.
If the contract is for a predefined fixed term the salary reduction may not be possible, certainly subject to the wording in the contract.

I think it's a good idea to contact RAV - not because they will pay for the difference (they won't, unless perhaps the contract is terminated), but because they may be able to give you legal advice. Or at the very least, direct you to some entity that does (make sure to ask if that service is free or not first thing).
