Slave Labour Class II List
Claimants who plausibly demonstrate that they performed slave labour for one or more of the companies on the Slave Labour Class II List are eligible for compensation.
Each company appearing on the list meets the following criteria:
  • (a) it timely identified itself to the Special Master as required by the Court's Order of 26 July 2000;
  • (b) it was Swiss-owned in whole or in part during the Nazi era; and
  • (c) it has provided the Special Master with names of persons believed possibly to have been slave labourers, or it has represented that such names are unavailable despite diligent investigation.
A company's appearance on the Slave Labour Class II List does not necessarily mean that it used slave labourers.
