Alternatives to Swiss B permit not arriving in time?

Hi all,

I plan to start work 1 December in Zurich and have read that it can take from 4-8 weeks to get the B permit - obviously, in my work contract it says i can't start work until I am 'in receipt' of the B work and residence permit.

So I need to know if there is some way I CAN start work whilst the papers are being processed - as long as the papers have been submitted therefore, I can theoretically 'work' and get paid?

I read this could be the case, but wondering if anyone has any firm guidance - obviously being out of work for one month (or two) is going to cost us a fortune out in CH.

We will write to HR on Monday to see where I stand, but if anyone has any advice, I'd be most grateful!
Cheers
