Unemployment benefit - Work in Switzerland, Live in France

I am working in Geneva but live in France. Being a british citizen, where do I stand as far as claiming unemployment benefit if I get sacked?

Thanks for your replies in advance.

Re: Unemployment benefit

Good question...

Where do you pay your taxes? This is probably the answer...

This might help you a bit further as well.
Do you speak any French at all?

90% sure that unemployment would be paid out of Switzerland since you
pay taxes here.

You are paying taxes in Geneva. Did you also pay unemployment insurance premiums in Geneva, too? For the preceding 12 months? Then contact the Geneva office ORP (Office Regional de Placement)
