Non EU / Unemployment tied to permit?

Hi all,

I am a non-eu and have been on unemployment benefits within the Zurich canton since July 2016.

This is a grey area to which I cant seem to get a clear answer but my Permit L expires in May of 2017 -- will I still be entitled to unemployment benefits beyond this permit expiration date?

Anyone with personal experience on this? Logic says it is tied to my permit but I would like someone who has or is undergoing this right now?

Many thanks in advance,

Re: Non EU / Unemployment tied to permit?

According to this Ct. Zug link, a permit will normally be extended in practice until the end of the period for which the job-seeker is eligible for unemployment compensation. There is, however, no legal requirement to do so:

"Ein gesetzlicher Anspruch auf Verlängerung einer Jahresbewilligung besteht nur in bestimmten Fällen. In der Praxis wird im Normalfall die Jahresaufenthaltsbewilligung verlängert, solange jemand Taggelder der Arbeitslosenversicherung beziehen kann. Ein eigentlicher Anspruch auf Verlängerung der Bewilligung besteht in diesen Fällen indessen nicht."
