Unlike previously, the bonuses will be paid out as cash rather than vouchers.
All employees who have worked during the crisis will receive the bonus.
Those who worked between 50 and 100 percent of full-time hours will receive a 500 franc bonus.
Employees who worked between 1 and 50 percent of full-time hours will instead receive 250 francs.
The bonus is to be paid “in recognition of the extraordinary effort and great performances shown during the lockdown period”.
It is not the first bonus that the employees have received, with Swiss supermarket workers given gift cards in April.
Supermarkets Aldi and Lidl have already paid out bonuses to their staff, however these are worth between CHF350 and CHF400 and are given as vouchers.
