Who:

Listed Swiss companies with >300 employees

When: 

After completion of the difference adjustment for the revision of company law in Parliament, various follow-up work will be necessary, such as the amendment of ordinances (in particular the Commercial Register Ordinance / Handelsregister). Only then will the Federal Council decide on the entry into force. Expected to come into force not before 2022.
