    Default Unemployment Eligibility Requirements in Nevada

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Nevada

    I worked from Nov 15, 2010 - Mar 23, 2011 at one job. Left the job.

    Working May 5, 2011 - approx October 31st, 2011 (seasonal position).

    Is there any chance i'll be eligible for unemployment once i'm laid off in late October/early November? (no, i did not work prior to Nov 15th in 2010.)

    Thank you!

    Sure there is. You probably won't get a hefty benefit, but you should be eligible for something.

    my only concern is not even having a year (of more or less) continuous employment. is that not the bare minimum?

    I don't know about Nevada specifically but usually it's based on the earlier four of the five quarters immediately preceding your layoff. I can't think of any state offhand where you have to have worked a continuous 52 weeks. There may be one, but if so I've never been made aware of it. In any case, you should absolutely apply no matter what. The worst the state can say is no, in which case you're no worse off than if you never applied in the first place. There is no penalty for being wrong, and it doesn't cost anything.
