unpaid vacation

Hello all,
I'm a non-EU B permit holder, living in Switzerland for almost 3 years. What I would like to know is whether it is possible for me to take an unpaid vacation for a few months (with a blessing from the company, of course) and not lose my working permit/visa? How long can I stay outside the country and not violate any rules?

Re: unpaid vacation

As I understand it you can keep it if you reside in Switzerland more than 180 out of the year. Certainly if you remain employed I think you'll have no problem. With B permits it gets sticky when you lose employment.
