Labor laws existed before the creation of the Swiss Code of Obligations (CO). When the CO was created in 1911, however, rules on employment contracts were introduced in it. The Federal Labor Act (French / German) dates from 1964. Legal revisions are published in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce (SOGC) and the Bundesblatt (BB) / Feuille Fédérale (FF).
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.
