Protection against dismissal

Protection against dismissal

The Swiss Code of Obligations states that pregnant women with a permanent contract cannot be dismissed during the pregnancy and 16 weeks following the birth of the child. Employees can give notice during the pregnancy, complying with the period of notice stated in their contract. If both parties agree, a contract can be cancelled. Both parties define the terms of the cancellation.
