Re: Unemployment Insurance/chomage for Directors (Corona)

If you are registered in the Swiss "handelsregister" (commercial register) then no, director is not just a title. However, I was in a situation many years ago where the company (of which I was a registered director) placed all staff temporarily on minimum work (2 days per month) due to extreme financial pressure and I claimed from RAV (Chomage) for a top-up. After some months of arguing they did eventually pay, although I don't know exactly the rationale - possibly because I was not an owner.
Am also registered as a Director in the Swiss Handelsregister. This title in itself does not exclude me from claiming any entitlements in the case of unemployment.
You will be as entitled to claim according to the conditions available to anyone else. Whether you are entitled to claim is a different matter. You need to consult your local RAV.

OK, my employer is a considerably larger company than one or two persons, but the OP should really inform him/herself properly over such things before setting up an international enterprise.

I doubt that EF can supply this info. Let‘s see.
