Pestalozzi: New Job Reporting Obligation for Employers

1. Background

Within the context of the implementation of the mass immigration initiative, the Federal Act on Foreign Nationals (AuG) has been amended. New article 21a AuG mandates the Federal Council to take measures to strengthen the potential of Swiss domestic employees. One such measure is the introduction of a job reporting obligation for employers which is enshrined in the Federal ordinance on employment services and personnel lending (article 53a AVV ss.).

The new provisions of the AVV stipulate that as of 1 July 2018, employers must notify the Regional Employment Agencies (RAV) of vacancies in specific professional groups for which the unemployment rate reaches a threshold of 8% before the vacancy can be further advertised.
