Employees and union complain

With the pandemic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, Swissmedic, had to do a lot of work. For example, the institute issued the first approval for a Covid-19 vaccine in winter 2020. The workload for employees is high, but employees already reported problematic work relationships before the pandemic.

A termination in May 2019 caused a dispute and was taken to court. It was about a 59-year-old woman who had worked for the company for 18 years, like that “NZZ” reported. During the proceedings, the employee stated that she was “shocked and in no way prepared” about the dismissal. Six weeks before the dismissal, the person concerned had an interview with the supervisor, she was not warned about a dismissal.
