Employment of domestic worker/nanny
Domestic workers are subject to the NAV - Ordinance on the Normal Employment Contract for Domestic Workers. The statutory minimum wages and various conditions which must be observed are set out in this ordinance. Each canton also has its own regulations, which are explained in the cantonal NAV.
Please note that the amount of the salary depends on education, experience, skills, market value, etc. The market wage is between CHF 4,000 and CHF 6,000 gross per month.
A domestic worker can be hired as a live-in or live-out employee. Domestic workers who live with families (live-in) usually come from abroad and move to Switzerland for the job. For domestic workers who already live in Switzerland, in most cases only a live-out relationship comes into question - employee person works in the house, but lives in his own apartment.
