Switching employers and drop to part time on work permit?

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,


If you have a work permit that is not connected to a specific employer, can you switch employers and drop to part-time hours with the new employer?

I am not sure:

1. If you switch employers, what steps (if any) you must take legally (inform the KVR of new job, etc.)

2. If the new job has to meet a certain amount of hours or salary. Can you take a part-time job?


Thanks for the help!

if your work permit is really unrestricted you can work for any employer, any amount of hours (up to the legal maximum of 48 per week). You can even be self-employed, if you want that.


Your new employer needs to know your Krankenkasse, and you should tell your Krankenkasse about your job change.


Congratulations !
