RAV & Notice period

Hi
My employers have given me notice to leave. Either I can stay at home on 'garden' leave for 3 months on full pay or i can get the 3months in one payment and quit now.

I have been told that the Rav would essentially calculate that the lumps equals 3 months and block me from getting the RAV for this period.

This makes sense, but want to check it with someone that knows

thanks

Re: RAV & Notice period

Do you expect to be paid and get RAV too?

Re: RAV & Notice period

Lots of info online in English The StGallen RAV website is excellent and in English:

Registration at RAV
Seeking employment during the notice period
If you have already been given notice or if you expect to lose your job,please register as soon as possible
in personat one of the six RAV offices in the Canton of St. Gallen. At the very latest, you must register the
first day that you are officially unemployed.
Your first appointment will be held at the RAV office responsible for your place of residence.


So you need to get in touch now wiht your local RAV office, explain the situation and begin to search for a job now to hopefully not require help from RAV. They will only begin to pay when you stop being paid for your job, of course- and only if you show evidence that you are doing your best, from now on, to find anotehr job. Bonne chance.

Odile - thanks for this. Intent is clearly not to go on the rav and get a job again... fingers crossed

Re: RAV & Notice period

I have no idea, you really have to talk to them direct. But it would have been much easier to correct this when in employment then when on RAV- as you are well aware. Your permit might not be renewed unless you get a job fast. Arrghh, hindsight, hey. Good luck.

Re: RAV & Notice period

Let's put it this way ...

RAV is good, RAV is funny, everybody RAV's for money ...

To the point until they all find a job

Many thanks,
If you meet the requirements (5 years here, good integration, no debts, language certificate from an approved school) then yes you can apply now. The question is, should you?

I'd advise not to apply while you're unemployed. Your permit now is good until 2018 and you're eligible for RAV. Just start looking for jobs and only apply for the C permit after you've got a new job secured.

go for the lump sum if you have found another job already and are not taxed at source. In this you have double pay for a while. When taxed at source, you would have a too high taxation (that you might get back after 2 years).
in all other scenarions: garden leave is the better solution.
