Permit Approval / Quotas
 
I am Canadian and just got an offer from ABB at Baden. While I'm still reviewing that, I got to thinking what would happen if the cantonal authorities denied ABB's application on my behalf due to filled up quotas or something after I have already signed the offer and let my current employer know that I am leaving. Is this a real possibility?

I know it could take 8 - 12 weeks to get the permit / visa processed and technically I don't need to tell my employer just yet but they are so very frigging nice and after 12 years here I just want to be upfront with them.

Any info is appreciated, thanks!

On a separate subject, how do people thank other people? I just can't find that button!:confused:

Yes it is. Your contract/offer most likely includes some fine print about being conditional on having or getting authorization to work in Switzerland.
So I would definitely postpone resigning until your work permit is approved. If you have such a good relationship with your employer that you think it's okay to tell them now that you _might_ be resigning very soon and nothing would go wrong if you end up not resigning then sure, go ahead :)

I think it appears after you have 10 or so posts on the forum :)

Go with your gut. I would not resign until your new job is secure.



If your notice period is nil, then you dont have to do anything yet. By telling them, even though they are a good employer, youre pretty much benefitting them and not looking out for yourself.

Hi vaquero, did you get your permit in the end? May I know how long it took from the time your company submitted it to the canton?

Thanks lots!
