More security with quitt.’s insurances

When signing up for quitt. you can choose your favoured complementary insurances.

In contrast to accident insurance, taking out daily sickness benefit insurance is voluntary. However, as an employer you are obliged by law to continue to pay your wages.

More information

As a rule, damages arising from work activities are excluded from the employee’s private liability insurance. This insurance closes this gap.

More information

As a rule, legal disputes involving you as a private employer are not covered by private legal expenses insurance. This insurance covers this gap and protects you comprehensively in labour disputes with your employees.

Any further questions?

To register as a new customer, you need an e-mail address, your personal details as an employer and your 13-digit social security number (AHV number). Further information regarding the registration of your employee or if you would like to register as a legal representative, our FAQ has the answers

Yes, that is possible. After registering the employee and drawing up the employment contract, please send a short e-mail to support@quitt.ch stating that the employee is a family member. This is relevant for the correct selection of the billing procedure at the compensation offices. For family members, only the ordinary billing procedure is available.

For care services that serve to manage everyday life, the minimum wage for housekeeping activities applies. For nursing activities, on the other hand, higher customary wages are to be paid. ​On average, a “nursing assistant SRK” in Switzerland earns CHF 4,221 per month.

More information on minimal wage you find in our Employer ABC

Yes, this is possible. However, it is important that when registering, the person to be looked after is first recorded as the employer. This ensures that this person is the principal vis-à-vis quitt. and that we can settle accounts with all authorities on his/her behalf. Following the registration of the employer, you can then enter the data of a representative. All communication will then go through the representative.

No, quitt. only takes care of employment and accounting formalities. We also support you in the administration of cross-border commuters and tax at source.

Remuneration in kind is part of the salary and must be accounted for accordingly. However, no taxes are payable on reimbursed expenses. Payments in kind regular expenses are defined when setting up the employment contract. The according amounts are then accounted for and paid out as part of the payroll accounting.

No. Employers are not obliged to take care of the health insurance of their employees – this is part of the employee’s duties. According to the Health Insurance Act (KVG), the entire Swiss residential population is obliged to take out health insurance with a recognized health insurer. The insurance obligation applies to people residing in Switzerland, but also to people with a residence permit that is valid for at least 3 months. Cross-border commuters can exempt themselves from the insurance obligation if they provide proof that they have health insurance in their country of residence and that this insurance corresponds to the benefits catalog of the KVG.

According to the law (Art. 324a, para. 1OR), if there is no sick leave insurance, in the event of illness the employer must pay the employee the full salary for a certain period according to the years of service. Provided that the employment relationship has already lasted more than three months or has been entered into for more than three months. In the first year of service, the duration of the wage continuation is at least three weeks. The wage continuation is 100 percent from the first day of illness. From the second year of service, the duration is based on the salary continuation scale. Other arrangements are possible, but they must be at least equivalent for the employees and must be stipulated in writing (in the employment contract, for example) or in the standard employment contract / collective employment agreement.

If the employer has taken out voluntary sick leave insurance, the employer continues to pay at least 30% of the average salary during the waiting period (for quitt. the waiting period is 30 days). If the illness lasts longer, the sick leave insurance will continue to pay 80% of the average salary. In the event of prolonged illness, the sick leave insurance will continue to pay 80% of the salary for a maximum of 730 days.
