Frequently Asked Questions
Placing temporary workers into Switzerland can be extremely complicated and there are potentially many pitfalls.
Once you have negotiated terms and conditions with a company (“the client”), you will need to identify an employment services company such as Swissroll which offers a one-stop contractor management service including work permit administration, payroll services and tax optimisation. The employment services company (Swissroll in this case) then signs a supplier agreement with the client and an employment contract with you. We then lease you to the client as a contractor and our employee.
Once you have agreed terms and conditions with the client company and then identified an employment services company such as Swissroll to manage your payroll solutions, you will become an employee of Swissroll with a Swiss employment contract. This status is called “EOR” or Employer of Record.
Working under the EOR status, it is possible to work with a client – either based in Switzerland or a foreign company. The main consideration is that you will be a contractor for the client and be employed by Swissroll which will have a supplier agreement with the client and you will then leased back to the client.
