SWITZERLAND: Forthcoming job advertising requirement 

Effective 1 July 2018, companies hiring foreign nationals will be required to advertise selected job vacancies through the regional employment centre (RAV/ORP/URC) for five days. 

All jobs in professions with a high unemployment rate of 8% or above are subject to this new regulation from 1 July 2018 until January 2020. From 1 January 2020 this threshold will be lowered to 5%. 

Employers who will not comply with this regulation may face fines of up to CHF 40,000 per case.

How does this affect the client?

Companies intending to employ foreign nationals after 1 July 2018 for professions with a high unemployment rate should prepare for this extra step and allow for the additional time of five days in the requirement process.
