Notification of illness

In the event of illness the employee must inform his/her superiors without delay. From the 7th day of illness onwards a doctor’s certificate must be presented to Human Resources.

Accident insurance

Employees with a weekly working time of 8 or more hours are insured through SUVA (Swiss National Accident Insurance Organization) against the consequences of occupational and non-occupational accidents.

Employees with a weekly working time of less than 8 hours are only insured against occupational accidents and must take out their own private insurance against non-occupational accidents.

Accidents which occur on the direct route to or from work are classed as accidents at work.

Occupational and non-occupational accidents must be reported to Human Resources without delay.
