“What are our employees’ mandatory contributions?”
“Should we take out daily sickness benefits insurance?”
“As an employer, when can I introduce short-term work?”
“Were the hiring days justified? If not, what can I do about it?”
The Swiss social security system is comprehensive and offers broad protection against the various dangers and risks of (working) life. However, it is not always easy to keep track of the numerous insurance plans and to assess who is subject to which insurance and when, or what contribution and benefit obligations exist.
We advise employers, employees, and self-employed persons on all legal issues in the following insurance plans, and we represent you before the authorities and in court:
- Old-age, survivors, and invalidity pension plans (AHV/IV)
- Accident insurance (UVG)
- Unemployment insurance (ALV)
- Income replacement/maternity compensation (EO)
- Family allowances
Our advice also covers issues relating to daily sickness benefit insurance. Although such insurance is not mandatory for employers to take out, many employers use it to protect themselves against the financial risk resulting from the statutory obligation for sick pay.
