As part of my overall compensation package I was granted RSUs that are not all vested yet. I will be layed off on 4/5/19. Since the stock was part of overall compensation for time that I clearly was employed, can they take back my stock that is yet to vest or do they need to accelerate it and pay it out?

    Check the grant contract, but unless it's included in a severance package (if you'll be getting one) it's extremely unlikely you'll get the unvested shares. – Kevin Mar 14 at 20:10

If it's not vested it's not yours, so they are not "taking away" anything. They might accelerate it as part of your severance, but you are not yet entitled to the shares.
