Who does the work permit belong to?

Hi, I've been reading most of the threads and I find them very helpful. I have a question though.
I hold a B permit that has just been renewed (my current permit expires on Nov 28 and my employer has renewed it). My contract expires Nov. 30 though and I'm not sure if we'll agree to renew it.
Does the renewed work permit belong to me or can my decide not to give it to me?

If you are from EU, it is yours.
If you are not, I'm not sure sorry...

Irrespective of the type of work permit they do not "belong" to your employer. They all belong to the issuing Kanton. Each kanton has their own quota of permits they are allowed to issue and if they go over this then they need to "borrow" some from a kanton that is under the limit. A C permit is slightly different but let's not go there...

Dependent on the status you have ie EU or not the permit can be attached to your employer but this situation is more or less released with the first renewal of a B permit when you probably become entitled to unemployment benefit.

In any case the kanton's immigration bureau and the local community hall will be responsible for you getting your permit. If this is not the case ie your employer provides you with your permit in the hand I would immediately contact your local community as this is most extraordinary and indeed incorrect.

Thanks a million for both responses - I will post a "follow-up" for info after I know what happens!
