Contracts & regulations
Employment contracts and usually also regulations are an important basis for the employment relationship between employer and employee. There are various wordings that are necessary so that employers do not take unnecessarily risks. This is particularly the case regarding employees residing abroad.
I review the interaction between the various documents and present proposals for adjustments. Or do you need new regulations?
Creation or revision of regulations, directives and information
Depending on the size and requirements of the company, various elements are declared to be part of the contract and must be available for the employee when the contract is signed.
These are, for example:
Travel and expense regulations
Working time regulations
Training and further education regulations
Company car regulations
Home office regulations
Regulations for assignments and secondments
Employee participation regulations
At the instruction and information level, there are a multitude of further possibilities, whether in the obligatory or voluntary area, e.g. information in case of longer absences, unpaid leave, resignation, etc. Are you also considering the international dimension? This already starts when not all employees are resident in Switzerland and continues when they often go abroad.
For which document may I support you?
Correct implementation in payroll accounting
If employment contracts, regulations and directives are drawn up far away from those responsible for payroll accounting, one should not be surprised if they are not implemented correctly.
- Who is responsible?
- What information must flow to whom?
- Are the calculations in the salary continuation situation correct and are lump sum expenses (eg. representation allowance) reduced accordingly?
- Are all special features of the approved expense regulations correctly reflected – including the salary statement?
- Are the wage supplement payments in accordance with the working hours in the labour law correctly considered?
May I help you answer these and other questions?
Distinction from the assignment
With the possibility of providing a service for a company from anywhere in the world, there are more questions now than ever before.
Do you recognise hidden employment relationships, and do you know the consequences? Even if you call a document an order, it does not mean that it actually is one – at least in terms of labour, social security and tax law.
By the way, did you know that even stricter rules may exist abroad and that thorough inspections by the competent authorities are not uncommon?
It is worth clarifying this before it is too late and, in addition to administrative hurdles, can have major financial and criminal consequences for the company.
Depending on the situation and query, I will support you together with my network.
