Work permit question

My husband and I both work in Switzerland right now, and both have our own L work permits. My question is if at any point I would stop working at my company
1) Will I automatically have the right to stay in Switzerland since my husband has a work visa
2) If I want to find a new job, will I need to find sponsorship for work visa from the new employer, or will my husband's work visa grant me an automatic right to work?

We are both from a Non-EU country.

Thanks very much for any responses.

I exactly dont know how it works for this thing.But i guess you will have to register at the local geminde as his dependant.I am sure you will get the exact answer from someone.

But as far as your second question is concerned,as a Non-EU and a L permit holder,you must get the work permit processed by the New Employer.Your husband's work permit will not automatically give you the rights to work.

Cheers,
