I have few payslip related questions for you!
I changed job recently and I’m fighting with “the real world” of employment in Switzerland after many years of a kind of “compensation and bureaucracy heaven”.
Now, my payslip mentions two insurances I wasn’t used to see (a.k.a. pay) there with my previous employer:
- UVG: accident insurance. I see I need to pay the not-related-to-work part, which in my payslip is more than 200 CHF per month… is that normal? My Health Insurance would extend my sickness insurance to cover accident for ~10 CHF/Month. Can I do anything? Can I cancel this insurance? According to this I can’t… what the fuck! Do I really need to pay 200 CHF/month for accident insurance?
- KTG: this is the “salary compensation payment insurance” in case of sickness. It’s another 100+ CHF per month. Is this also mandatory? In case it’s not, is it “such an amazing deal that I should not let it go”?
Sorry for the rant, but hitting the real workplace after years of being spoiled by american companies is not easy
