Re: Masters Embedded systems engineer 7 yrs exp -dependent L permit
Your wife has no automatic right to be able to work here on a dependent's L permit. That's not to say she can't work, but it does mean she needs to find an employer who's willing to apply for a change in her permit to add the work right to it. This is what the Foreign Nationals Act has to say:
"Members of the family of a short stay permit holder (art. 26 OASA) do not have a right to gainful employment. The gainful activity is subject to authorization.
On admission, a request by the employer respecting the pay and conditions of employment customary in the locality and in the branch must be made. In addition, members of the family of a short stay permit holder (art. 26OASA) must have professional qualifications (personal qualifications, Art. 23 AuG).
The possibility of gainful employment for family members is related, according to art. OASA 26 and 27, to the duration of the authorization of the person granted family reunification. If the residence permit of the spouse is not renewed, the members of his family cannot claim a right to pursue their gainful employment (art.6, para. 2, OASA)."
I don't know her area of expertise, but if there are plenty of Swiss/EU nationals who have it then employers are going to hire them over her because it's easier for them to do so as they don't have to make an application to change a permit.
