RS 02001.160 General Coverage Rule for Employment under the U.S.- Swiss Agreement

A. Coverage rule and exceptions

1. General territoriality rule

Under the agreement, employment is ordinarily subject to the coverage laws of only the country where the employee performs the work. A person working in employment who otherwise would have dual coverage under the laws of both countries will remain covered only under the laws of the country where he or she performs the work.

2. Exceptions

The agreement provides several exceptions to the territoriality rule to ensure that a worker's coverage is under the system of the country to which he or she has the greater attachment. The references cited below list these exceptions.

B. Reference
