Switzerland - Law on dismissals assessed - June 30, 2016

In a study that assesses the legal provisions related to (protection of) dismissal because of trade union actions the conclusion is drawn that the current legal acts are to a certain unconstitutional and not in line with the relevant ILO-provisions. The published (second) volume of the detailed study focused on the right to strike and the protection of workers involved in strikes. The authors found large deficits in the protection of workers against union-busting and unfair dismissals. The legal act (Obligationenrecht - OR) violates fundamental rights that are enshrined in ILO-conventions and the European Convention on Human Rights.
