SECO has published a new directive on intra-group staff leasing

  • Switzerland



    Deviating from the directive of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) on the Federal Act on Recruitment and the Hiring of Services (RecA), the SECO clearly states in its letter of 20 July 2017 that intra-group staff leasing is in principle subject to permission under the RecA. However, there are certain exemptions to this principle.

    The SECO lists several criteria that may be an indication for staff leasing that does not require a permission, e.g. transfer of know-how within the group, low workload or short term need for additional human resources.

    SECO’s letter on intra-group staff leasing is available in German under the following link: SECO directive.
