Missed opportunity to eliminate discrimination between men and women in operating allowances

In the case of a self-employed mother the Swiss Federal Supreme Court rejects an operating allowance similar to the one paid to women and men in service. This unequal treatment is due to physical differences between men and women and is therefore not discriminating. In the opinion of the Swiss Federal Supreme Court, the legislator must take action and enact the legal basis to pay an operating allowance to self-employed mothers as well.

Home schooling after COVID-19 – Federal Supreme Court confirms the legality of the strict requirements

In an officially published decision, the Federal Supreme Court has confirmed that the cantons can decide on the requirements for home schooling as long as this ensures that there is sufficient primary education. No entitlement to home schooling can be derived from the Federal Constitution. The complainant therefore failed with her request. In the light of this current case law, the regulations on home schooling in the Canton of Zug appear to be in conformity with the Constitution.

Immediate execution of a non-competition clause of an employment agreement

Reichlin Hess represented a client (employer) in the super provisional execution of a non-competition clause foreseen in an employment agreement. In a partial approval of the request, the employee was prohibited by the competent court from using documents of the former employer and from contacting its customers and suppliers. This result is pleasing for the client, as it allows its legitimate interests of confidentiality to be safeguarded.
