As of January 1st, 2020, there is an extended job notification requirements in sectors with trigger level of 5% unemployment rate.
To promote local workforce, as of Jan. 1, 2020, employers have been legally required to register vacancies in occupations where the Swiss national unemployment rate is at least 5% with the regional employment center (RAV). So far, the threshold was set at 8%. Applying publication ban, job vacancy must be exclusively published for 5 working days on an online job portal that can only be accessed by jobseekers registered with the RAV before it can be advertised.
Immediate consequence is that hiring non-CH nationals might take more time. Swiss companies must check if vacancy is subject to the job registration requirement by means of the official check-up tool: https://lnkd.in/gq7k5pA.
