To understand how much you will pay to hire Cooplers for a job you need to look at the

Your final cost depends on the number of shifts and workers you hire, as well as on the GAV regulations. Your invoice will contain all the information about the final cost.

You will only pay after you've hired a Coopler and they have turned up for work. If you didn't find suitable Cooplers or you cancel the job in advance, there will be no charges on your account.

Let’s look at everything in detail:

Understanding Wage per hour

When you create a job, you can select how much you want to pay each Coopler per hour. This is the Wage per hour (CHF).

The wage per hour is determined by the Job profile and the Experience or Education level. Depending on the industry and level of experience, a different minimum wage applies according to the generally binding Collective Employment Contracts (CEC).

You can adjust it as long as the wage per hour is above the minimum wage stated in the Collective Labour Agreement (GAV) for that job.

Under the Wage per hour, you will see a Recommended wage higher than the minimum wage. Consider following our wage recommendation to attract top performers, more experienced staff, or to cover urgent jobs. Higher wages will make your position more attractive to the right Cooplers.

Understanding Cost

The Cost (CHF) is the addition of the Wage per hour + the Coople fee.

Our fee includes National Insurance and pension contributions, holiday pay, apprenticeship levy and our earnings. Please take a look at our pricing page to understand the full list of services we provide in exchange for our fee. You can also find more information on this in our general terms and conditions.

Your final cost depends on the number of shifts and workers you hire, as well as on the GAV regulations. Your invoice will contain all the information about the final cost.

Understanding the Estimated total cost

Once you select the shift dates and the number of workers you need, we will show you an Estimated total cost for the job.

You will find the Estimated total cost at the bottom right of the screen, next to the “Publish job” button. You will only accept this cost after you publish the job, and we will only charge you when you hire Cooplers and review their working hours. Until that point, using Coople is always free of charge.

Understanding the Final cost

The Final cost, or what you pay to hire Cooplers for a job, might be different from the Estimated total cost you see when you publish a job.

What can affect the Final cost?

1. Editing the job

  • Adding or removing workers from the shift will change the final cost

  • Adding or removing shifts to the job will change the final cost

  • Editing the start and end time of a shift will change the final cost

2. Coverage

You may have planned to hire 10 workers but in the end, just 8 made it to the job due to unplanned illnesses or other coverage issues.

3. The Collective Labour Agreement (GAV) for that job

If your job is covered by a GAV, the final cost per worker will depend on the regulations set out by the labour agreement. This agreement usually covers:

  • The minimum wage for a particular industry

  • The minimum wage for the worker’s education level: skilled, semi-skilled or non-skilled

  • Night shifts, weekends and public holiday wage considerations

  • Overtime work compensations

With Coople, you don’t have to worry about complex Swiss payrolling regulations. Final wages always comply with the law.
