Unemployment Insurance In California????

The look-back period for calculating unemployment benefits is two years, so your UI benefits may be slightly impacted.
Your age does not matter.
You say you are working a contract job.
Are you an employee or independent contractor? (Do they withhold your payroll taxes?) If you are and independent contractor and have not been paying your own UI, you will probably not be eligible for benefits.
You can call their offices if you expect you will be laid off and ask how much you will recieve if you need to plan ahead financially.

Unemployment Insurance In California????

If you have not worked for an employer for at least three quarters (9 months) you won't have enough wages in the account to receive benefits from unemployment. On the personal side it is better to leave and just chalk it up to a learning experience than to get fired. I would say not to lie on your unemployment application and say you were laid off as the employer would have to challenge that as untrue since they have already replaced your position. Honestly, either way you are losing your job, it's better to leave as a resignation than to get fired. If you are fired for cause it's much worse than a resignation because things just didn't work out.
