Switzerland publishes updated vacancy reporting requirement for employers

On 30 November 2023, the Swiss Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research published an updated list of professions where, in case of any vacancy, employers must report it to local unemployment offices prior to advertising it. The updated list will go into effect on 1 January 2024. Several occupations have now been removed from the list for 2023, and the list for 2024 includes a total of 17 occupation types, down from 25 in 2023. The new list still includes the occupations of conference and event managers; hotel receptionists; communication specialists and call center agents. Employers that do not comply with the vacancy reporting requirements may be subject to fines of up to CHF 40,000 (approx. USD 45,750) in case of major violations and up to CHF 20,000 (approx. USD 22,875) in case of minor violations.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
