Instead of communicating with many different authorities, you only communicate with quitt or conveniently log in to your personal customer area. In addition to practical templates, you will find all the necessary information and documents concerning your employment.

Even more security, with the quitt.insurances

Within the scope of your registration for the quitt.service you can supplement the desired additional insurance.

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.

Do you have any further questions?

Yes, quitt offers its services throughout Switzerland. The service is also available in German, French and English.

Accident insurance, daily sickness benefit insurance, housing comprehensive insurance and employer’s legal protection.

No, quitt only takes care of employment and accounting formalities. We also support you in the administration of border crossers and withholding tax.

If there is no daily sickness benefit insurance, the employer must, according to the law (Art. 324a, para. 1OR), pay the employee the full salary in the event of illness for a certain period per year of service, provided that the employment relationship has already lasted for more than three months or was entered into for more than three months. In the first year of service, the period of continued pay shall be at least three weeks. Continued pay is 100 percent from the first day of illness. From the second year of service, the duration is based on the continued pay scale.

Yes, with our daily sickness benefit insurance (KTG). Here, too, you benefit from the partnership with Basler Versicherung and attractive employer and employee contributions of only 0.75% of the gross salary each. In the event of a prolonged illness, KTG will step in after just 30 days. Your nanny thus receives 80% of the insured salary for up to two years.

The quitt partner “Nanny Association Switzerland” recommends a monthly salary of 3’800 to 4’100 Swiss francs for nannies without specific training and experience (base: 100% employment, 43 working hours per week, 4 weeks of holidays, 12 monthly salaries). For people without specific training but with experience, the recommended monthly wage is between 4,100 and 4,600 Swiss francs. For nannies with specific training and without experience, the recommended salary is between 4’385 and 5’500 Swiss francs. People with training and experience should earn between 5’5000 and 6’500 Swiss francs per month.

Around a quarter of the nannies registered with quitt earn between 4’000 and 4’500 Swiss francs gross per month.

There is no general minimum wage in Switzerland. According to the standard employment contract for domestic workers (NAV Hauswirtschaft), the following gross minimum wages per hour only apply to employment with the same employer for an average of five hours or more per week:

  • Unskilled employees without work experience: CHF 19.20
  • Unskilled employees with 4 years work experience in home economics: CHF 21.10
  • Trained employees with a three-year basic vocational training and a Federal Certificate of Competence (EFZ): CHF 23.20
  • Trained employees with two years of vocational training and a professional certificate (EBA): CHF 21.10

quitt recommends adhering to these minimum wages.

The Swiss Red Cross recommends the following hourly wages: from CHF 10 for young people and from CHF 12 for adult babysitters. In addition, there are night flat rates and an increase in the hourly wage for several children to be cared for.

Remuneration in kind is a wage component and must be accounted for accordingly. However, no levies are payable on reimbursed expenses. You can simply enter payments in kind and expenses in your quitt.account so that they are correctly calculated and paid out.
