Remarks:
  • 1) Unfair dismissals (for ordinary dismissals):
    Art. 336a CO (see above).

    2) For dismissals with immediate effect in the absence of fair reason:
    Art. 337c CO provides that where the employer dismisses the employee with immediate effect without good cause, the employee is entitled to damages in the amount he would have earned had the employment relationship ended after the required notice period or on expiry of its agreed duration. The court may order the employer to pay the employee an amount of compensation determined at the court's discretion taking due account of all circumstances; however, compensation may not exceed the equivalent of six months' salary for the employee.
