On April 21 I told my employer I would not be able to work past April 30. On April 23rd, I got a phone call after work from them to let me know my project had ended. This is not exactly the truth as I know the project is ongoing and they laid off 5 of 12 working on the project (I am an hourly contract attorney with an agency, and "Your project has ended" is just their line whenever they don't need you anymore). I suspect I might have been selected for the layoff because I had told them I wouldn't be working past the following week, but I was surprised by their call. I wanted to work up until April 30 but they cut me before I got to that date. Can I claim unemployment benefits based on this scenario?
