I am liable for military service -  RS/WK (basic training or refresher course). How should I proceed and will I be compensated?
You should immediately contact your direct supervisor at your place of work and also Kelly under temp.program@novartis.com.  

 

The Income Compensation Card (EO-Karte), which is issued after completion of the military assignment, should be filled in and forwarded to the Clarastrasse branch of Kelly Services. Kelly will complete the employer section and apply for the daily allowance due from our compensation fund (Ausgleichskasse).

You are entitled to the daily allowance compensation under following provisions:

  • you have a contract for an unlimited period
