Thank you for your question.
Although I am an attorney, I cannot represent you. However, I will give you the most thorough information I am able.
To the extent that your employer has terminated you, in the absence of a written contract promising you employment for a certain period of time or some other bargaining agreement, it is not likely that you can take your employer to court. Your employer is allowed to terminate employees for any reason that is not illegal or discriminatory based upon an employees age, race, religion, national origin, etc. The fact that they are low on work is a legally valid reason to terminate an employee.
To the extent that you would like to collect unemployment, then you can contact the State to find out what you would qualify for. Generally one can receive unemployment benefits if they have been laid off due to a reduction in work. If you are currently collecting benefits, then you may consider contacting the office to let them know how your work schedule has changed.
Please let me know if you have any other questions on this matter or require clarification. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT" so I may receive credit for my efforts.
If you have additional questions, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
