Dependent L Permit Work Authorization

I am currently on L permit (Non EU) through an Indian IT company and my wife lives with me here as dependent. My wife was working in Switzerland on WP in 2011/2012 and later she resigned the job. The client IT manager contacted her now and she is ready to offer my wife a job in Switzerland.

As she is on Dependent L Permit, I assume she can't work directly. Please let me know the process to get Work authorization for her. Also please let me know if there are any Payroll agencies who can take care of the paper work.

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Dependent L Permit Work Authorization

A Swiss employer would need to ask permission from the cantonal authorities as they have to meet certain conditions before they'd be allowed to hire your wife.

As I understand it, she cannot be self-employed here.

Re: Dependent L Permit Work Authorization

Hi Medea Fleecestealer,
Thanks for the feedback. My wife has a specialized skill in a niche technology and the employer is a Pharma Giant (Her pay will be on par with the IT Project Managers). The position that her Client IT manager offers is a Contractual position for 1 year.

When she was working here before, she came to this country via an Indian IT company, who was taking care of the Work permit process. We would like to know if there any HR/IT resourcing companies who can process the WP with Authorities. The Client Manager is ready to give any letter if needed.

No.. her potential employer has to apply. That is the only way!
