Overview of accident insurance

Compulsory accident insurance in accordance with LAI insures your domestic staff and protects you against the financial consequences of an accident – unbureaucratically and immediately, with an inexpensive annual premium.

A brief explanation of accident insurance for domestic staff

If your cleaner, nanny, gardener or other domestic staff work more than 8 hours a week, you are required by law to insure them against non-occupational accidents too.

If the babysitter is not older than 25 and earns less than CHF 750 per year from you, the work is considered to be a pocket money job and the person does not have to be insured.

In this case you are a customer of the cleaning company, and the cleaner is insured via her employer (cleaning company). You therefore do not have to insure your cleaner.
