Did your employer terminate your contract and you have now become incapacitated for work during the notice period? And have you also already completed the probation period? If you answered yes to both questions, the notice period is interrupted and only continues once you have regained the capacity to work or the statutory notice period in accordance with Article 336c (1b) CO has expired. The statutory waiting period is 30 days in the first year of service, 90 days in the second through fifth years of service and 180 days thereafter. The employment relationship then ends at the end of the following month.

Do you want to terminate your employment contract? Then you must comply with the notice period in your employment contract (or framework/collective bargaining agreement). If nothing is specified there, check the legal notice period in accordance with Article 335c(1) of the Swiss Code of Obligations (CO). Your employer must receive your notice of termination by the last day of the month for the notice period to begin on the first day of the following month. To be on the safe side, you should send our letter template via registered letter and also via e-mail in advance. Please note that your unemployment benefit could be reduced in case of termination by the employee.
