    I also worked at Salem for a brief time. Not certain I fully understand your question but I'll try to answer:

    If your bf is temping at this other company and they've decided to end

    his assignment on Friday then he would not be eligible for unemployment because he is still an employee of Salem Group. Even if he's on standby and waiting for Salem to assign him more work he is still technically employed.

    However, if Salem is letting him go then yes, he would be eligible for unemployment.

    You can apply online for unemployment at this site:


    You can apply for LINK here (they recently changed the name of the program to SNAP):


    Good Luck
