    WORK TO LIVE or LIVE TO WORK

    Salaries are high in Switzerland and people don’t need to work crazy hours to have a good standard of living. The car parks are full of Mercs and Audis until 5pm and then it’s a mass exodus as people head home to their families. The place is like a ghost town after 5pm regardless of how busy...

    WORK TO LIVE or LIVE TO WORK

    I work in Switzerland and the Swiss are huge believers in having a positive work / life balance. It’s actually illegal to work more than 45 hours in any week or more than 10 hours on any particular day. If we are caught exceeding this, both the employer and employee are heavily fined. We...

    Is ordering three meals on expenses acceptable.

    Intersting fact! Yeah, the whole team submitted expenses and the meals were entirely for her - I think she was under the impression it was like a per diem payment and that she could spend £50 however she wanted. The main thing in question is probably what is the definition of an evening...

    Is ordering three meals on expenses acceptable.

    I never called her a fat greedy lump, I just asked for opinions on an expenses submission. What value would it add to the debate by posting a receipt that shows three pizzas for £50? As for the posting of data from our financial data, you would not believe the level of data security and...

    Understand how to take a screenshot! To take a screenshot from a personal invoice (regardless of what the content is) and post it on social media on a works computer is a sackable offence

    Is ordering three meals on expenses acceptable.

    Ha ha, I like it! A pizza in Brig will cost you about 20 francs - this particular receipt had three pizzas for about 60 Swiss Francs (65 Swiss francs = £50) in Bern (where I stay) for two pizzas delivered it will cost you about £50-60 and an Indian takeaway for two about £60-£70 (two mains...

    Is ordering three meals on expenses acceptable.

    Come on, who still gets expenses on a hard copy? I get an electronic invoice with her timesheet, invoice, charge rate and expenses. You’re asking me to snip a photo of a receipt with three pizzas on it and post it on social media from a works computer?

    Depends on where you are. In Zurich, Geneva and Bern it won’t get you much. In the more remote locations it gets you a whole lot more

    I will never show a vaccine pass to go in pub , football stadium or any other business that asks for one

    I think the purpose of the passport is to protect you rather than everyone else. Appreciate we are all grown up though and can make up our own minds. I hear what you’re saying about the rules though. I had to travel on a train with a few hundred strangers from London to Middlesbrough to say...

    My employer slipped up and never gave the guys the expense guidelines so In some respects we maybe screwed. This makes it unfair on our own people though who don’t have such a perk

    Just for herself, all of her colleagues have the same deal so no need to buy for anyone else

    Yep, alcohol is also prohibited at my company. There was two occasions where she also bought Pringles and chocolate brownies but still stayed under the £50 In terms of keeping it under £50, does that mean you could go and buy £50 worth of meat from a butchers and that would be allowed?

    Yeah, maybe the American mention was unnecessary. However their eating habits are different to the Brits and they have a culture of taking leftovers home with them after a dinner. That’s more what I was getting at
