Revision of the UIA

The ongoing revision of the Unemployment Insurance Act (UIA) simplifies the provisions on compensation for short-time working and bad weather, and reduces the administrative burden on companies. At the same time, it establishes the legal basis for implementation of the eGovernment Strategy in the area of unemployment insurance.

The Federal Council submitted the bill and the dispatch to Parliament in May 2019. The Act is set to enter into force in 2021.
