Secondment, visas and work permits

Along the countless issues related to secondment and obtaining work permits and visas…

…we are an important partner to both Swiss and foreign enterprises in staff planning, assignment planning and their legal implementation.

Our lawyers have many years of experience in secondments, in obtaining work permits and visas, and in both collective employment contracts [Gesamtarbeitsverträge] and standard employment contracts [Normalarbeitsverträge] and the monitoring of these agreements.

Time and time again as legal practitioners, we see the risks in implementing regulations on classification, remuneration and working hours in collective labour agreements on secondment, especially in relation to foreign enterprises. We can offer systematic support to our clients with our extensive practical experience and knowledge of dealing with public authorities. We also negotiate with joint comittees [paritätische Kommissionen] on our clients’ behalf and provide support in labour market checks. We will represent your interests in cases of breach of secondment and labour law, and of generally binding collective and standard labour agreements.
