Renewal of family reunification permit while on Unemployment benefits


I was browsing through the forum but could not find a final answer to exactly this question.
I am married to a non-EU who works with an open-ended contract in Switzerland.
We both studied here and I was working untill a few months ago, and am now on unemployement benefit. We had both L-permit (mine without right to work since I was unemployed). Apparently this time the employer of my wife has asked the canton to change the L-permit to B-permit.

What is surprising to me is that this time they want documents from me about the unemployement timeframe and the remaining daily allowance.
Does the permit renewal (for the dependent person in the frame of family reunification) has anything to do with being on unemployement? Is it possible that they refuse to issue me a permit or to give me a different permit type or with shorter duration than my wife?
