EU - back in CH after assigment abroad. Job cut - and now?

Hi all,

I'm an EU citizen who lives and works in Geneva since 2008.
Due to a 1 year assignment in Hungary I had to deregister my B work permit.

Once I was repatriated to Switzerland, my company let me know, due to restructuring I'll be fired in three months.

Is the company obliged to activate my previous B permit for these 3 months?

I've seen mostly of the job offers are asking for C or B permit. In terms of job searching, what's the difference between "B permit" and "residence permit"?

Thanks in advance for your inputs

Do you know if that can be an issue to get the unemployment benefits?

First things first, i feel sorry for you that you are in the situation you are in right now. must be quite crappy having to relocate (that is what you meant right?) back to switzerland only to find no job etc etc...

As a citizen of an EU state you do not have to worry about your permit not being approved (unless you come from one of the newer EU member states). Apparently all one has to do is go to ones Kanton's version of the Einwohnersamt and register oneself to get one of those residence permits.

There is no way your company can activate your previous B permit. That, I would assume is left to the Kanton to decide.

Now the important thing... read the sticky on permits for EU citizens very carefully, you may just find what you are looking for there

I am not sure of the legalities of this. Technically he is employed by the company for 3 months in CH, even if gardening leave. Thus, he is paid, pays AVS and the like, so assume he needs a valid permit for this.

For OP, best to visit chomage dept. with your paperwork and they should sort you out. If you paid into the system before working abroad, and Hungary being EU, it should be covered by the bilateral accords for unemployment benefits.
