Not quite sure what the bold part means but in general does it not matter at all what permit you are on: Every employee has the social insurances in place to get paid when sick. If you are longer than three days ill, you typically need to see a doctor and get a paper from him to assure that you do have a medical condition. No big deal.

Re: Sick Leave eligibility in switzerland

This document may help, specifically the "Holidays and leave" section on page 33: http://www.bj.admin.ch/content/dam/d...igration-e.pdf

In general though, best place to check is company HR as - as far as I know - companies can set their own policies with regards to sick days, when medical certificates are required etc.

What I forgot in my previous post is that you also need to consider where your contract is signed
On most contracts there is a clause specifying which countries' law will apply in case of employment disputes, so it may be that, although you are living and working in Switzerland, sick days may be governed by the laws of a different country
Again, my advice would be to contact HR

Really? Sick days - as any other social security - are governed not only through work contracts but national laws. You cannot legally employ somebody here and let him work day and night - even though this might be legal in some third world countries. No matter what the contract says: an employer cannot so easily circumvent the minimum standards here.
