Employment for Spouse of EU Citizen

Hello,

I recently acquired my L permit for a period of 1 yr and was told my spouse will get the same type of permit (I'm guessing it will be L resident and not L work). She is not an EU citizen yet (from the US).

I realize that there is some form of law that states that an employer must try to fulfill a job with a Swiss citizen, then EU, ... However, does this apply to her as she already has a permit?

Also, does anyone have any tips on good places to search for non-profit type jobs in Geneva? She is very well educated and has an MA with ~3yrs of work experience. We are already scouring the internet!

Thanks!

If she has a permit, then she should have priority before anyone who doesn't reside in Switzerland/who is without a permit.

n.b. An L-permit is temporary residence and is valid for up to a maximum of 364 days. It isn't valid for an entire year, but just under!

Thanks for the quick response and the info regarding the last day!

Does she get less precedence than an individual of Swiss origin or EU origin (since she isn't EU, but I am) from the employer perspective?

I would have thought, but am not certain, that Swiss-passport holders get priority, then presumably EU-passport holders with a permit, then non-EU with a permit, then EU yet to get a permit, then non-EU yet to get a permit.

There is however the complication that in many border regions/cantons, like Geneva, Ticino etc. you have cross-border commuters who receive a G-permit. They remain resident in their countries (France, Italy etc.). They are typically paid somewhat lot less than any worker who is resident in Switzerland, - in theory they have lower living costs. Some employers favour cross-border commuters unfortunately, simply because they cost so much less.

In theory employers have to give priority to the resident population i.e. persons who are Swiss or foreign but have a valid residence permit already. In practice it is a bit different.
