Permit B and switching jobs

Hello all,

first of all I want to thank you for all the information you're posting in this forum. I can't stop reading and reading in this forum.
Is my first time posting on it. So Hello to everybody!!

I wanted to know a little bit more about the working permits.
If I get a Visa Permit B, can I switch job after a while? some months or some years for example? Or I'm always attached to the company that offered me a contract to come to Switzerland?

Moreover, I wanted to know about the legal trial period in a Swiss contract. Is it 3 months maximum?
And when you want to quit a job, can you negociate the date you want to leave the company or it is 3 months by law?

Thank you very much for your answers!!

Hallo

Yes , you can change your job with a B permit. I am an Indian, and had a B permit associated with employer. I changed my job also the kanton in which I lived.

You can change your job without problem. The B permit is not "attached" to that specific job/company

Ok I understand then that B permit is not attached to the company is first giving you the job.
Does that mean that if you lose your job a year after arriving, you'll still have the residence permit for 4 more years ?? ( 5 years of residence permit with B )

The permit an EU national gets is a residence permit - work permits are no longer required. It has nothing to do with the employer as mentioned many, many times before.

Try searching the forum a bit.
