Legal working hours for foreigners

Dear all,

As in the near future I will be working less hours I am trying to apply to new part-time job to fulfill that time and perhaps extend it but since the last referendum about foreigners my doubt still persists: how many hours can one work in Switzerland per week with a permit B?

Thanks

AFAIK, as an EU citizen you have no limits on the # of hours you can work neither are you effected by the new referendum unless you commit a crime. Good luck with your job search.

Re: Legal working hours for foreigners

Thank you Minimia,

I had the idea that crime and working hours were different questions treated separately in the referendum but both related to foreigners, I believed the decision about working hours was meant to all foreigners and not to the ones indicted to crime.
Is there any official website where one can learn more about legislation that regulates work?

Thanks again

Re: Legal working hours for foreigners

What kind of restrictions are you suggestion could be in place? Maximum hours or minimum hours?

EU citizens have no specific restrictions on working hours. You can even work as an independent so like one hour a week if you want. As long as you can support yourself then there is no problem.

But do let me know if you find such restrictions.
