Have you worked in Switzerland and must now register at the employment office in an EU or EFTA member state? Then you will be asked for the PD U1 form. This form establishes the times that are to be taken into account for the granting of benefits when an individual is unemployed.
In the canton of Basel-Stadt, the public unemployment fund provides these certificates.
- - International employer certification (filled in by the employer - in German only)
- - Salary statements for the last 36 months.
The documents can be sent by email as pdf, or by post, or handed in personally at our counters.
The PD U1 for persons living in FR-67xxx or FR-68xxx will be sent directly to Pôle Emploi, provided you are registered there.
PD U2 / E 303
If you want to look for a job in an EU or EFTA member state, under certain conditions you can transfer your Swiss entitlement to unemployment compensation (ALE) for a period of three months (benefit transfer). For more information, please contact your Regional Employment Centre (RAV).
You can find more information in the brochure "Leitfaden für Versicherte".
