Labour Directorate


The labour market policy covers a broad area. Its aim is to enable as many people as possible of working age to be engaged in gainful employment, to earn salaries that enable them to live a dignified life and under conditions that are not detrimental to their health. The Labour Directorate works in close collaboration with the social partners and the cantons to ensure clear rules regarding employee protection, unemployment insurance and job placement as well as for opening up the labour market following the intro duction of the free movement of persons. We also represent Switzerland in the Inter national Labour Organisation and are permitted to promoting a social dimension of globalisation.
