Labor law - Relaxation of the provisions of the Ordinance on the Labor Law

As of July 1, 2023, a revision of the Swiss Ordinance on Labor Law has been in force. Initially, this will enable service companies in the field of information and communication technologies to offer their employees greater flexibility. Article 32b Swiss Ordinance on Labor Law 2 allows workers involved in projects with deadlines to work up to 17 consecutive hours instead of 14 in certain situations. In addition, the daily rest period can be reduced to nine hours instead of eleven, or even interrupted several times a week.




At the same time, Article 34a Swiss Ordinance on Labor Law 2 will enable service companies in the audit, trust and tax advisory fields to introduce a model of annualized working hours for their employees in senior or specialist positions.


These changes are designed to meet the changing needs of an increasingly international labor market, and to enable service companies to better adapt to fluctuations in demand, while preserving employees' work-life balance. It is important to remember, however, that the protection of workers' rights and respect for working conditions remain a central concern in this revision of the Swiss Ordinance on Labor Law 2.
