Any questions?

Yes, quitt.ch offers its services all over Switzerland in German, French and English.

We offer accident insurance, sick pay insurance, household insurance and employer’s legal protection insurance packages.

No, quitt.ch only takes care of administrative and accounting formalities of domestic employment. However, we will support you in handling cross-border worker formalities and the withholding tax.

If no sick pay insurance has been taken out, the employer has to continue to pay the employee’s full salary during a determined period of time according to law (Article 324a (1) of the Swiss Civil Code), but only if the employer-employee relationship is older than three months or has been established for more than three months. In the first year of service, the period of continued payment of wages is at least three weeks. The continued payment of wages equals 100 percent of the employee’s salary, starting from the first day of absence. As of the second year of service, the period of continued payment of wages is regulated by the chart of continued payment of wages.

Yes, with our sick pay insurance (KTG). Thanks to our partnership with GENERALI, you will benefit from attractive employer and employee contribution rates for this kind of insurance – each paying a mere 0.75% of the gross wage. If your employee is unable to return to work for a prolonged period of time owing to illness, our sick pay insurance will kick in after 30 days. Your employee will receive 80% of his or her insured wage for up to two full years.

Between CHF 3,450 and 3,800 CHF for nannies without specific education and between CHF 3,800 and CHF 4,800 for nannies with knowledge and experience in a full-time position.

There is no such thing as a generally accepted minimal wage in Switzerland. Following minimal gross wages (excluding vacation compensations) are applicable in Switzerland. They are based on the standard employment contract for domestic works (NAV Hauswirtschaft) for all employments starting from at least an average of 5 working hours a week with the same employer.

Payment in kind is part of the salary and has to be accounted accordingly. On the contrary, no tax has to be paid on refunded out-of pocket expenses. Payment in kind and out-of pocket expenses can easily be entered into your quitt.ch account so that they are correctly accounted and disbursed.
