I am about to be laid off from a job where I have a 'guaranteed' annual salary (monthly salary varie

In the past, if I did not have enough billable hours the balance of the guaranteed salary was paid at the end of the year. I would have received about $10,000 at the end of this year to make my full salary, am I entitled to the pro-rated portion if I’m laid off in November?

I think it's possible -- but I would need to look at a few documents and talk with you further to come to any conclusion. What I would need to look at are any representations regarding your pay (employment offer letter; employment contract; pay stub; employee handbook; employer correspondence relating to this; evidence of past practice around this pay-out) and talk through these things with you. Also, keep in mind, even if it turns out you're not entitled to it, there may be leverage to negotiate it anyway as part of your separation from employment.
