March 7, 2019

On 5 March 2019, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) published a new national salary calculation tool that all cantonal labour authorities must now use when conducting remuneration checks to verify the work conditions of seconded workers (temporary intra company transferees or workers posted at a client site to fulfill a service contract).
