Switzerland -Liability in the subcontracting chain -October 22, 2012

A draft law that introduces several liability in a chain of subcontracting has been approved by the parliamentary committee on economics. Trade union Unia has welcomed the proposal that introduces a mandatory social responsibility for the main contractor. It is an essential instrument for the social partners to improve contract compliance and can be seen as a crucial flanking policy measure for the free movement of workers and services.
