More safety with the quitt.insurances

As part of your registration for the quitt.allround-service, you can add the desired complementary insurance. These insurances are available exclusively on quitt.

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.

Which is the right rate for me?

Yes, quitt. takes care of the registration, payroll and insurance of all domestic help. From cleaners, babysitters and gardeners, to full-time nannies, au-pairs and caregivers.

No, quitt. only takes care of employment and accounting formalities as well as the administration of cross-border commuters and the withholding tax.

Yes, with our sick leave insurance (KTG). Here, too, you benefit from our partnership with Basler insurance and attractive employer and employee contributions.

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

According to the law (Art. 324a, para. 1O), 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 percent 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 percent of the average salary. In the event of prolonged illness, the sick leave insurance will continue to pay 80 percent of the salary for a maximum of 730 days.

More information on the topic of illness and sick leave insurance, you’ll find in our glossary and in our blog: Do I have to pay the full wages when my cleaner is unable to work due to long-term illness?

The quitt.-partner “Nannyverein Schweiz” recommends a salary of 3,800 to 6,500 francs per month, depending on experience and training. About a quarter of the nannies registered with quitt. earn between 4,000 and 4,500 Swiss francs gross per month. Further information about the appropriate salary of a babysitter can be found here.

Remuneration in kind is part of the salary and must be accounted for accordingly. However, no taxes are payable on reimbursed expenses. Remuneration in kind and expenses can easily be added in your quitt.account. so that they are correctly accounted for and paid out.
