What are the rights of a B permit holder in case of redundancy?

Ever the pessimist, I'm curious to know what my rights are in case of job loss in Switzerland.

My circumstances are as follows:

- I hold a B permit valid for 5 years;
- I have been working in Switzerland since 1 July 2020;
- I hold a permanent employment contract with a Swiss entity;
- My contract states that I have been in continuous employment since 1 May 2017 (albeit under a Dutch entity prior to my relocation).

My questions are as follows:

1. How much notice period is my employer required to give me? My contract simply states "statutory notice period".
2. Am I entitled to any statutory severance pay from my employer? There is no mention of it in my contract.
3. How long am I permitted to remain in Switzerland after the termination of my contract by my employer?
4. Am I entitled to any unemployment benefits following the termination of my contract?

Thank you in advance for your help!
