Job registration requirement from 2021

The list of occupation types that have to be registered is updated in the fourth quarter every year and applies from 1 January to 31 December of the subsequent year. The sole criterion that determines whether occupations need to be registered is an unemployment rate of at least 5% in the occupation in question.

The rates are calculated for the whole of Switzerland on the basis of the twelve-month average for occupations according to the Federal Statistical Office’s Swiss Standard Classification of Occupations CH-ISCO-19.
