rejected work permit, please help

Hi, I am a data scientist graduated from a master's degree in EPFL. I am from Turkey (non-EU) and I got a job in Zurich and they have applied for a work permit. It has been rejected. I have lost 3 months and rejected other offers. What should I do or ask from the company? Is there any way to reapply or objection to the decision?

Thank you for your help, I feel really desperate.

Re: rejected work permit, please help

You first want to know why you got rejected. Without knowing that you have no clue how good your chances are at other jobs or if an appeal could even have a chance of being successful.

If this is within the 6 months graduation period then they must have considered the job of not enough economic or scientific benefit to Switzerland. But you do need to find out why exactly it was rejected before you can look at appealing the decision.

Rejected them explicitly or gave them an ambiguous message that you come back to them later?

You may ask a copy of the letter they sent to justify why they were hiring you. The letter should be exaggerate a bit telling that big income depends on your position, that without hiring you the business goes bankrupt....maybe that's too much but words matter.

If you know that letter, you can go back to one of the other companies and collaborate with them in writing the request.

I have graduated from EPFL, and my field can be counted as advanced and beneficial. What else should I do to be counted as economically useful?

My employer said that they are not considered the job position too advanced that no EU candidates can be admitted. Basically, they have considered the position suitable for other EU candidates, so my only fault is being a ng non-EU.

Nothing you can appeal only the company can do such. If they do not want to do so it is end of story (and even if they do so there is no guarantee to succeed)

"and my field can be counted as advanced and beneficial" As you noticed, that alone is not enough.

I missed the Zürich part the first time. Well, Zürich is a special place, check this other thread in the forum https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...-b-permit.html

Focusing a bit more on income, this is what the law says: "Salary, social security contributions and employment terms for foreign workers must accord with local, professional and sectoral conditions. Some sectors lay down these conditions in a collective labour agreement, which is legally binding at national or at least cantonal level. The authorities also carry out checks on wage and working conditions to ensure that foreign employees are not exposed to abusive working conditions and that workers already in Switzerland are protected from wage dumping." https://www.sem.admin.ch/content/sem...20and%20sector

The law may be interpreted in the following way: your employer must apply for the permit with an average salary for Zürich or risk being assessed as wage dumping and denied. Read the thread above, other EF members tell stories about employers applying a second time with a higher salary and.....voila, permit approved.

Also, there's the precedence principle in the law (link above): "Precedence is given to Swiss nationals, foreign nationals with a permanent residence permit (Permit C), and foreign nationals with a residence permit authorising them to work (Permit B, incl. recognised refugees)." So your conclusion about your position is only suitable for other EU candidates is unfounded. Other non-EU nationals with a permit can also apply, including people from Turkey.
