How is occupational retirement provision regulated during maternity/paternity leave?
During the 14-week maternity leave, female employees continue to be insured under occupational retirement provision, and both the employer and the employee continue to make their contributions at the same level. The same applies to the 14-day paternity leave. Employers receive compensation from the OASI compensation fund during this period, which amounts to a maximum of 80% of the average income.
As an employer you need to apply for compensation from the responsible AHV compensation office. You can find the relevant form on the website of the AHV/IV information office.
Should your employee be disabled to work for more than 3 months before her childbirth, please report the disability to work through the form notification of inability to work to us.
