This is a followup to What happens to contractors when employer goes bankrupt?.
When I signed with that company as a contractor, my contract promised me 10 days notice before letting me go. Presumably, if a situation had arisen where they said "We don't need you anymore; today's your last day", they would have given me some kind of severance (such as 10 days' pay).
Does the same apply because the company went bankrupt and suddenly told all its employees that it was their last day? Can I bring up this fact when the bankruptcy lawyers contact me?
NOTE: This is probably all hypothetical. It assumes a) By the time my group of creditors start getting our money, there will be enough to pay all I'm owed, instead of pennies on the dollar, and b) the settlement occurs sometime before the first manned flights to Mars.
