I work in Big Pharma, German language is not necessary, since it is an international company. They have already been outsourcing to India for over 5 years now. Despite the expected hiccups, they still continue to do so and have stopped all local hire aside from senior executive positions. (They even recently tried to hire one of those in India & it was widely disputed and management eventually gave in.)

Well in that case I would look at how you could best prepare to find a new job. Remember you will be entitled to 18 months RAV so no need to panic.

Thanks, I've been trying hard for some time now. Market is tough...

For RAV, I've heard different time frames for how long you can receive benefits. 18 months is the lowest I've heard, I was informed 2 years or 20 months. What is it?

It depends on how long youíve worked for and thus how many days benefits youíve accrued.

It is 18 months unless you are close to retirement age in which case it can be two years.

I can't believe a well funded company would so openly ask for the government to put people's health at risk in order to boost their business. Well, maybe I should. They refused to clean their trains more at the start of the pandemic, they still refuse to take additional needed measures and now this. I really wish I didn't have to use them everyday once this crisis is completely over. They won't add additional trains to avoid crowds, they won't demand masks be worn (just recommend), nor will they take any measures to ensure better safety for their customers and employees. Really disappointed to hear this.
If they dont boost the business the boss of SBB wont get his 100,000CHF bonus this year!

One has to get these people off RAV!! Put them on the roads digging ditches or in factories on the assembly line.

I’ve worked every day for almost 10 years.

Thanks a lot Dack Rambo - 18 months it seems then. A lot less than the 2 years I had previously known.

400 days if you are younger than 55, 520 for anyone 55 and older

A week is 5 days so 400 days is 80 weeks.

Plus, any part time or casual or very short term work you do, the wage is deducted from you ALK and the days are added to the end, up to a maximum of 2 years, so, if you are fully unemployed itís only around 18 months, but if you get a temp/causal job it can last longer.

Re: SBB demands end to working from home due to COVID-19

When you sign up to RAV you get what is called a Rahmenfrist of two years. The payment you are entitled to is 80% or 70% of your previous salary depending on whether or not you have children.



So if you were earning 100,000 CHF you will as a single person get 70,000 CHF per year (5833 CHF per month, calculated at a daily rate). During these two years you can take up temp work without negatively effecting your entitlement to RAV payments during the two year Rahmeefrist. For example, if you take a temporary job at 5000 CHF per month during 6 months, when you go back on RAV you are still entitled to 70% of your 100,000 salary. Also RAV may make up the difference between 5000 CHF and 5833 CHF. So you are in no way disadvantaged by taking up a lower paying job.


On the other hand, if you were to take up a higher paying job for 12 months, you are entitled to a recalculation of your RAV payment based on that higher salary.


For example, if after six months on RAV at 5833 CHF per month, you start a one year contract at 120,000 CHF per year, once that contract ends you still have six months of your Rahmenfrist left so you can again claim RAV without having to reapply or go through a waiting period.


For the remaining 6 months your RAV payment will be based on 120,000 CHF giving you 7,000 CHF per month. Then once your Rahmenfrist has ended you can apply for a new one, again two years. During these two years your are entitled to 12 months of RAV payments at 7,000 CHF per month.


So it is really a good idea to look for contract work while on RAV until you can find a suitable permanent job.
