New Requirements for Swiss Employers

Posted in Law, News

job vacancies

As of 1 July 2018, all employers with job vacancies in Switzerland must post their vacancies with the regional employment centers (i.e. RAVs) for a set period of time before opening the position up to outside areas. This is to ensure that priority is given to Swiss and EU nationals residing in Switzerland over non-European candidates. Only professions with a national unemployment rate of 8% or more will be required to be listed this way and that will drop to 5% as of 1 January 2019.

Industries affected are:

  • Construction
  • Hospitality
  • Watchmaking
  • Marketing
  • Public Relations
  • Telephone Operators

However, these do not cover all professions in these industries. Registering with the RAVs implies that:

  • For the first 5 days of the job vacancy, it is only allowed to be accessible to persons registered with the RAV and to RAV employees
  • RAVs are required to provide suitable candidates for a vacancy within three working days of the vacancy posting
