This. And I am surprised that the spouse of a Non-EU was able to get a work permission as well - often for Non-EU L the dependent spouse is not permitted to work. You need your own special work permit.



basically, your L permit was issued on arrival as a dependent spouse to your husband, if he is also Non-EU - the L permit is normally renewed for 2 years then the employer must renew it - in the same way that they recruited him and got the work permit, they must go through the process to show that they cannot find anyone in Switzerland or the EU to do the job. It's a new application process. the employer should be taking the lead on this - otherwise they are just messing you around.

This is down to your husband's employer. They need to sort it out.


Good Luck!
Being a Non EU, I was able to get a work authorisation (for part time work) last year after going through the whole Swiss recruitment showing that they could not find anyone in Switzerland or the EU to do the job. My husbands employer has withdrawn his application.
Hence, my organisation has offered me a full time job & permanent contract to meet the Non-EU requirements. They have filled for my permit last week. I am not sure which permit I will receive, how much time it would take being a NGO (and criticality of the project) or even if the authority will approve or not after seeing my husband's case.

We are staying here with L permit since almost two year and before the expiry, my husband's company applied for his B permit. It is never easy to get your permit converted to B. For Non-Eu, if you have a long term/permanent contract and enough salary (for you and your family to sustain), it is easier to get a B permit.
Companies apply for a permit period, it's the authorities who decide which permit they issue. Is quite common for the non-EU to get L permit for the first 2 years (even if they have a permanent contract and a good salary, yes.)
