Companies requiring a B permit...IN ADVANCE!!

Hey there!


I had an interview today and the guy from the company said that I need a regular working B permit before they hire me. I am a EU-citizen with a B permit for educational purposes so I am basically not allowed to work with my permit. How am I supposed to have a working permit if I don't work yet! Is their behaviour legal? Are there shortcuts to get a working permit? Someone told me that when you enroll a work agency, such as Kelly Services and stuff like that, they provide you automatically with a working permit...is it true?

Thanks guys...I'm very disappointed today

If you are original EU then you do not need a work permit - you just need a residence permit although you should get your current residence permit changed to reflect the fact that you are no longer a student.

yes, they're confused as to what they actually want. What they don't want to do is go through a permit process with anyone so they actually want a Swiss, a permit holder or an EU-15 (EFTA) citizen (so hopefully you're not from EU-25 and rather from EU-15).

Contact them and state that your permit is a formality and they need to do nothing.

Hi! I realised it was just a discriminatory behaviour. I'm Italian and I have all the rights in the world to have a B permit if someone hires me. The HRM guy is Swiss and he lives in Italy so he perfectly knows about it. But he just said this is the policy guideline they have received from their headquarters in Zug.
What rights do I have from being Italian (that is a EU-15) member? Don't I need to ask for a working permit anyway?

Thanks

I just want to add that many times, while reading job offers in newspapers, I found that they require a valid working permit in advance...I just wonder whether it is legal...
