Quitting my job on a Non-EU L-Permit??

Hi all,

I have been looking all around but cant find anything that quite matches my situation:

I am a non-EU passport holder with an L permit (despite unlimited job contract). I have been working in Zurich since June 2010, so about 16 months.

Lately, the situation at work has become quite bad, and some of my coworkers are seriously considering abandoning the ship.
But considering my situation, I do not even think that is an option for me:

- Will I be kicked out of the country after my notice period? (my permit expires in May and my country requires no tourist visa for CH)

-Can I receive unemployment benefits, despite having an L permit, non-EU pass, and having voluntarily quit?????

Thanks all for your help!!!

Re: Quitting my job on a Non-EU L-Permit??

I understand that if things are getting bad in your work environment you will want to quit, but i will highly suggest not to do it before you have already another job. Voluntary quitting from Non EU and asking for RAV asistance after only 16 months of work is exactly what makes swiss think us foraigners are lazy trying to abuse their country resources.
Please note that im not attaking you, I do believe you could have very strong reasons to quit, but keep in mind the image you will have on your shoulders for the next job aplicance. I really will suggest you to find another job or even talk to the conciliation board? Its said many many times on the forum that your chances to get another job are highly increased while you currently have one.

Best of lucks and hope all works out for the best.

Re: Quitting my job on a Non-EU L-Permit??

while I do understand you point, I do not think my "weathering the storm" will change the the perception of foreigners in Switzerland.

We are highly qualified professionals and we come to supply the labor not readily available in the Swiss market .We pay taxes, abide by the law, and are an invaluable contribution to sustain the economy... and yet, we are still portrayed as a plague.


Believe me, this is not a spur of the moment decision, speacially considering my non-eu/L-permit status. I need to see the options available to me.

You say you been looking around for another opportunity.
Are you sure your non-EU L work permit is transferable to another company?

I agree with you being an expat myself. I mean if you are highly prepared it wouldnt take much to find another job while having yours. thats all i gave you as an advise, but who am I to tell you what to do, the desicion is all yours to make.
