Social benefits beyond the obligations

In the event of hospitalization due to an accident, our employees are – in addition to the federal law on accident insurance – insured worldwide for medical expenses in the private ward of the respective hospital.
- Continued payment of wages in the case of illness or accident: in the event of not-at-fault illness or accident, as well as health issues due to pregnancy, this entitlement amounts to 100% of the agreed gross salary for up to 730 days.
- Continued payment of wages in the case of maternity: employees who are entitled to maternity compensation by law receive 100% of the gross salary agreed before labor for the duration of the legal maternity leave of 14 weeks.
- Pension Fund: free choice possible between three savings scales. Risk insurance premiums (covering death/invalidity) are covered by Sonova.
- Daily expenses for hospitalization: Sonova pays half of the employee premium after the employee has completed four years of employment. Sonova covers the entire employee premium after the completion of nine years of employment.
- Health insurance: our collective contracts offer Sonova employees the possibility of receiving attractive general conditions and simplified conditions of admission with regards their supplementary health insurance.
