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.

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.
