Technical and expert advice regarding short-time work
You have to switch to short-time work? We provide you with comprehensive support in the area of short-time work. Either with specialist advice from our experts on the current legal basis. Or we show you technically how you can implement short-time work in your SAP Payroll or Swiss Salary System.
Short-time work entails a temporary reduction or complete cessation of operations within a company or within a department. Short-time work must only be introduced where unavoidable and economically essential. The aim of short-time work is to retain jobs by using the affected employer’s unemployment insurance fund to cover wage costs for a certain period of time.
The coronavirus has now reached Switzerland, and is making headlines worldwide. The Federal Council’s decision on the 16th of March 2020 has forced many companies to introduce short time. Have you been affected? We’re doing our best to carry on offering the best service even in this unprecedented time, and to support you in implementing short-time work.
Considering the current loss of working hours caused by the coronavirus, the following two premises must be differentiated:
Our experts will be happy to advise you in any questions you might have regarding short-time work:
A SAP payroll advisor is normally the first port of call for any existing client wishing to technically add short-time work to their system. There isn’t one simple solution here, rather a range of various possible solutions for balancing short-time damages in your books depending on your situation, scope or budget.
Balancing short time requires time management information on one hand and bookkeeping information on the other. Businesses may have various systems, from simple Excel spreadsheets to third party systems to SuccessFactors TimeSheet or SAP Time Management. We work with our client to establish the best and most efficient solution to balance short-time work against the unemployment insurance fund. We review the process from A to Z: from time management to payroll accounting and unemployment insurance fund forms to bookkeeping records.
We advise all Swiss and Liechtenstein companies with 10 or more employees.
Ursula Neumann is looking forward to hearing from you and will gladly answer your questions.
