Employment Lawyer: Ray, Employment lawyer replied 2 years ago
Ok so here this indicates this to be treated as a layoff, do they indicate anywhere they will not oppose a claim for UI benefits.That is likely important for you here.

Employment Lawyer: Ray, Employment lawyer replied 2 years ago
Something like employer specifically agrees to not oppose any claim by employee for Unemployment benefits as a result of this layoff.
