Change Employer on L-permit AND extension of L-permit

I am working for an NGO now under and L-permit. But they have gone bankrupt and I am forced to quit (however they want me to stay and wait for a donation to come - but I have no savings...). Since I only have an L-permit I know I can not have unemployment rights, therefore since I want to stay in Switzerland - I must find new work.

Basics for my case:
- American
- 1 year permit
- granted for a 2 year contract with the NGO in July 2007
- expires July 28 2008
- first permit granted in Switzerland

I have found a new job:
- only 3 month contract that will expire end of August 2008

There is a possibility that I will go back to work for the original job once they have money again. The lawyer for the original job/foundation could apply for a B-permit.

Questions:
1. Can I simply change the employer on an L-permit?
2. How exactly do I have the employer on an L-permit?
3. How do I request an extension on an L-permit?
4. If the lawyer does apply for the B-permit for the original NGO, will it not be granted if I am no longer working for the NGO?
5. Would I have a better chance of receiving the B-permit - or extending my L-permit if the new job was a secondment (temporary transfer) agreed to by all?

Thank you in advance for anyone that can share their experiences or advice.

Your employer must do this.

If the the company is bankrupt this isn't going to be possible but the answer anyway is no.

I'd say your situation is complicated enough - don't make it worse.

Essentially, and as covered in other threads, your new employer must apply for a permit for you. Your current employer should give you a letter explaining why they are letting you go. As it is not your fault it is most likely that a new L permit will be issued.
