Labor law (or "employment law") refers to the entire set of legal rules which governs relations between an employer and an employee and which defines their respective rights and obligations. Spread out through several texts and in constant evolution, Swiss labor law has never been summarized in its entirety, as its range is so complex. The practice of Human Resources Management being intimately linked to the applicable labor law, the latter influences every step of the company’s employee life cycle management.
The terminology and translations used here have no legal validity, as English is not an official language in Switzerland. The following pages are for information purpose only.
