Re: EU looking for work is asked for permit...what to do?
A work permit is always also a residence permit (with the exception of cross-border permits of course). But a residence permit isn't necessarily also a work permit. For EU members, it's usually both, though.
Yes he can stay here for three months and yes, he technically doesn't need a permit for that. However, if he starts settling and they ask, he needs one or he won't get what he wants (or needs, for that matter)
He should go to the local commune and ask for a job-seeker permit. Pretty straightforward and the problem will be solved.
