Maternity leave

Maternity leave

What to do in the event of maternity leave

After birth, the employee is entitled to 14 weeks of paid maternity leave. This is governed in the Ordinance on Loss of Earnings Compensation (EOG). 

Prior to the birth and during the maternity leave   these employees will continue to be covered under the occupational retirement provision. The regular premiums of the employer and employee will continue to be collected without any changes.

This is how you proceed as employer

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.

Please note

Everything continues just as before in regards to occupational retirement provisions. However, as an employer you will receive wage compensation from the AHV compensation office during your employee’s maternity leave.

This is how you proceed as employee

Notification from the employee or employer is not required in the case of maternity leave.

Please note

If you have any disagreements with your employer, you can claim maternity benefits directly from the responsible AHV compensation office. You can find the relevant form on the website of the AHV/IV information office.
