What is the change? Switzerland is poised to expand job notification requirements.
What does the change mean? Starting Jan. 1, employers will be required to advertise open jobs for occupations where unemployment tops 5% to people seeking work through Switzerland’s Public Employment Service for five days before others can access the job notifications. The measure builds on Switzerland’s existing efforts to promote the local workforce. Currently, only occupations where unemployment is 8% or higher are required to meet the job notification rules.
Background: The expansion of the job notification requirement is the second in a two-step process to respond to the Swiss Parliament’s goal of promoting the local job force. The first step was implemented in July 2018, when job notifications were put in place for occupations with 8% unemployment or higher. The lower threshold will take effect for jobs that become available on or after Jan. 1.
Analysis & Comments: The lower thresholds signal Switzerland’s ongoing efforts to promote Swiss workers and could delay the hiring of foreign nationals in some instances.
