Contracts, salary and rights
When an employer decides to employ you, you must sign a work contract. The conditions of engagement (duration of the contract, the percentage of working hours, salary, social deductions etc.) should be discussed in advance.
Your employer will generally pay your salary into your bank account or post account at the end of the month.
In Switzerland, a collective labour agreement (CCT) exists that defines a minimum salary for certain work branches. You can get more information from the unions. These workers’ associations can provide you information and assist you if you have any conflict with your employer.
