trouble with a B permit for a non EU employee, please advise

Hi, everybody!

We have come here 3 years ago when my husband, Canadian citizen got a good offer from an American company located in Switzerland.They wrote undetermined on his contract and we really thought moving here was a good thing to do .
Today when he came from work, he was quite depressed because they told him they got some paper from Bern which mentioned his work here ends this Friday, 3 years later after he signed the contract.
His boss asked him to sign another 1 year extension but he mentioned the prolonged stay cannot exceed 24 months.
It looks very weird to me nobody told him anything about this 3 year work limit, his boss "seemed" to know nothing either. Please advise what we can do next, should we consider moving out because another year here means nothing since we have no financial guarantee. And besides I'm pregnant, due to deliver before the end of the year, this was the last thing we expected so we need to seriously consider what to do next for our two children.

Many thanks for your patience and advice,
Mari

It sounds very much like the employer has cocked thing up. Without further information my guess would be they applied for the slightly easier to get project related permit. If that initial project related period is now over then the only option is a possible extension due to the project extending. Take this up with your employer's HR department. If you have been genuinely deceived there may be a case for the Arbeitsamt.

Immigration advice might help in case of immigration issues, Mr One Liner - Notice also that this sentence has a verb and a subject.

Did you even read the OP's situation. Did you understand it?

You posted a link for asylum seekers. I asked why you thought that was helpful. You groaned my post but did not explain yours. Basically, your post is a waste of space.

I had exactly the same thing happen to me (non EU, US), however, the resolution was the application by my firm for a "Free" B permit. This was approved, and that's that as they say. Why not inquire about the same?

The link I referred to is for Asylum and MIgration issues. That's what it says on the website. Maybe Swissbob can look it up before blasting contributors.

They handle work and permit issues for foreigners, not only for Asylum seekers or Refugees

Re: trouble with a B permit for a non EU employee, please advise

Hi,
I would suggest to talk to your company HR and apply for a extension of B permit next week in Jan2011 or apply for a new L permit since next year quotas will be open for foriegners and chances of getting a new permit is high during January.

please correct me if am wrong.

all the best
