Employed in Germany, resident in Switzerland?

Happy Swiss National Day!

Our third in Switzerland since moving from the UK. We love it here but there’s just one fly in the ointment. The missus is still employed out of the UK, and has had no joy finding a Swiss job. With home office it’s no problem except for the fact she’s still officially UK resident and still pays full UK tax. She could renegotiate to work as contractor of course, but she’s afraid that offers less job security.

As it happens she’s not short of job offers. One is from a multi-national for a Europe-wide role. They have a German office, but no Swiss presence. So here’s the question: How would it work if she were employed in Germany but resident in Switzerland?

She can't do that if she's British - since brexit

I don't see why not since the OP said they've been in Switzerland for 3 years so before Brexit.

Re: Employed in Germany, resident in Switzerland?

As a Swiss resident with B permit, does she have the same access to EU employment as a Swiss citizen?

If you were in Switzerland as a Brit before 1 January 2021 you can stay working in Switzerland and be treated essentially as an EU citizen.

If you were a cross border worker before 1 January 2021 you can stay doing that retaining your rights.

You can't however switch.

The citizens right agreements gives you the right to carry on doing what you were already doing only.
