Wi-Fi Connectivity

Wi-Fi Connectivity

I love using the internet. My job is online based and so I need the internet to pay my bills and put food on the table. I however, hate being stationary for a long time. I could start my work in the house but finish it on the balcony or on my little garden behind the house. If you are like me then definitely you are grateful to Wi-Fi. Imagine the limitations if had to connect my computer via cable. I would have to stick to one place as frequent movement would break the cable and managing a long cable that would trip the kids… it just would be crazy. Here are general guidelines on how to set up a Wi-Fi network in case you need one.

· Setting up a wireless network with a wireless gateway.

A wireless gateway is usually connected to internet via a cable connector with a coaxial cable. Most simple wireless gateways feature one or more USB host connectors (For modems) a reset button, 1 or two telephone connectors for analog phone line(s) Gigabit Ethernet (a variable number of connectors depending on the model and /or make) for connecting a computer(s) via the LAN port, the power connector and the cable connector.

· How it works.

The power connector provides power to the unit and depending on the model or make, the power, Wi-Fi and online LED indicators may take time to light steadily. There are usually two ways that a Wi-Fi can be set up: the manual setup that takes time and the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) which is easy to set up but is not compatible with all with all devices. Depending mainly on the device used then your preference, you can choose either the manual or the WPS.

For a WPS setup you press the WPS button on your computer then in less than two minutes, press the WPS button on the Gateway. Normally a message will confirm the connection.

For manual setup, check the gateway for the Information label. This contains the Network name (SSID) and the password (Key). On the computer click the “Wireless Connection” icon (Windows OS) or “Wireless” icon (Mac OS). When prompted enter the network name and key (Case sensitive). If the network is ok you are good to go.

For the antenna connection an RP-SMA Cable extension is usually needed to set the antenna to the desired location. The cables come in different lengths but I personally use the 9M 30FT Antenna RP-SMA Extension Cable which has an Impedance of 50 as I needed to set my antenna a bit high and had to run the cable along the house to hide it from sight.

General Employment Law In Switzerland

Posted by on May 1, 2016

The statutory principles are essentially to be found under the ‘CoO’ (comp. Art. 319 et seq.). Employment law and labour statutory requirements are not only determined by the ‘CoO’, there are also regulations for specific types of contracts of employment.
The statute law

The foregoing ‘CoO’ differentiates between matters of statutory requirements and dispositive law. The statutory (compulsory) requirements, which take preference over all other regulations, are included in Art. 319 et seq. of the ‘CoO’, and these are listed in the Catalogues of Art. 361, Para. 1 and Art. 362, Para. 1 of the ‘CoO’. The remainder essentially represent matters of dispositive (non-compulsory) law. ‘CLAs’

These regulations, which govern the conclusion, content and notice of termination of individual contracts of employment, only need to observe statutory (compulsory) requirements and take preference over all other regulations.
Works regulations

Works regulations are subordinate to ‘CLAs’.
A normal contract of employment

Normal contracts of employment are not only subordinate to work regulations but also to individual agreements between parties.
Instructions

The law governing the instructions of an employer to an employee is only valid within the scope of an already concluded contract of employment.

Duty to provide labour
Definition

The duty to provide the labour represents the duty of an employee to render labour in the services of an employer. An employee is to provide the labour personally, unless otherwise agreed (comp. Art. 321 of the ‘CoO’).
Working hours

The working hours represent the extent of the labour due to be provided, i.e. the labour claim of an employer on an employee per day. In regard to the composition of the working hours, there are several possibilities, e.g. part time work, job sharing, etc.. The regulations concerning the maximum working hours per week are also to be observed as well as day work, night work and work on sundays.
Extra hours

Extra hours mean extra hours of labour rendered in excess of the normal working hours.
Duty to work extra hours

Under Art. 321c, Para. 1 of the ‘CoO’, an employee can be under a duty to work extra hours when the following prerequisites obtain:

extra hours become necessary;
an employee must be capable of working extra hours (physically and psychically);
extra hours of work should be capable of a reasonable- and good faith expectation of an employee.

Remuneration for extra hours

A claim to remuneration arises, when:

the extra hours are required by an employer, or
when not required by an employer, but deemed necessary.

Extra hours can be remunerated as follows:

employers as a rule are to pay remuneration for extra hours, calculated on the normal or contractual remuneration plus a surcharge of at least one quarter (comp. Art. 321c, Para. 3 of the ‘CoO’);
with the agreement of an employee, extra hours can be remunerated by time off work of at least the same duration (comp. Art. 321c, Para. 2 of the ‘CoO’).

Differentiation to overtime

Overtime is defined as labour rendered in excess of the maximum weekly working hours (essentially 45 hours per week). As with extra hours, overtime can be remunerated by time off work.
Infringement of the duty to provide labour
Duty of taking due care

An employee is to carry out his of her assignments personally and also to take due care in their compliance, pursuant to Art. 321a, Para. 2 of the ‘CoO’. The extent of the due care to be taken is decided under Art. 321e, Para. 2 of the ‘CoO’.
Sanctions

An employee, who fails to carry out his or her work assignments, or fails to take the necessary due care, can expect the following sanctions:

notice of termination of a contract of employment (without time period of notice, only in extreme cases of insufficient performance);
refusal to pay the remuneration or to pay a reduced remuneration;
indemnities for loss or damage under the preconditions of Art. 321e of the ‘CoO’ (premeditated- or negligent causation of loss or damage).
possibly agreed contractual penalties.

The liability of an employee

An employee is liable for any loss or damage caused to an employer premeditatedly or negligently. An employee must however be culpable to the particular extent assessable under Art. 321e, Para 2 of the ‘CoO’ (liabilities are determined in consideration of the work risk, the degree of training or the technical skills involved). The onus of proof is on an employer. The co-culpability of an employer can lead to a reduction of the liability. The same regulations in connection with liabilities also exist in cases of:

loss of- or damage to the motor vehicles of an employer, and the
shortfall liability, i.e. liability for petty cash (mostly in the catering- and retail trades).
