Switzerland updates list of occupations for which Swiss employers must advertise vacancies with a Regional Employment Center

The Swiss Government recently updated its list of occupations for which there is an unemployment rate of 5% or higher in Switzerland (“Occupations List”). As in 2021, Swiss companies seeking to fill vacancies in 2022 for jobs on this list must advertise the vacancies with the relevant Swiss Regional Employment Center before advertising them more broadly. This policy was implemented to reduce unemployment in Switzerland and limit the hiring of non- Swiss workers to occupations for which suitable candidates are not readily available in the Swiss labor market.
