Job registration requirement from 2020

From 1 January 2020, the threshold for occupations that are subject to the registration requirement under Article 53a of the Recruitment Ordinance will be lowered to a national unemployment rate of 5%.

The list of occupation types (PDF, 52 kB, 07.11.2019) (in German) shows which occupations have to be registered from 1 January to 31 December 2020.

In view of the lowering of the threshold for the job registration requirement on 1 January 2020, the Swiss Standard Classification of Occupations 2000 (SSCO 2000) was overhauled by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) in collaboration with the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the industry associations. The Swiss Standard Classification of Occupations CH-ISCO-19 will now form the basis for determining which occupations need to be registered.
