Re: What are the rights of a B permit holder in case of redundancy?

View Post
Ever the pessimist, I'm curious to know what my rights are in case of job loss in Switzerland.

My circumstances are as follows:

- I hold a B permit valid for 5 years;
- I have been working in Switzerland since 1 July 2020;
- I hold a permanent employment contract with a Swiss entity;
- My contract states that I have been in continuous employment since 1 May 2017 (albeit under a Dutch entity prior to my relocation).

My questions are as follows:

1. How much notice period is my employer required to give me? My contract simply states "statutory notice period".
2. Am I entitled to any statutory severance pay from my employer? There is no mention of it in my contract.
3. How long am I permitted to remain in Switzerland after the termination of my contract by my employer?
4. Am I entitled to any unemployment benefits following the termination of my contract?

Thank you in advance for your help!
1. 1 month (first year of employment)
2. I don't believe so
3. I think until permit is not renewed or revoked
4. I think the time working in a EU/AELS country is taken into account so this is possible
