Work and employment situation in private households

Here you will find all the information you need to hire household personnel. From the employment contract to the mandatory insurances and from the first payslip to contract termination.

Please note: If your housekeeper owns his/her own company and is acknowledged as a self-employed person in Switzerland, the following articles are not relevant for you. To be on the safe side, let your housekeeper show you the AHV's certificate of self-employment.
