Knowing that a layoff is imminent and therefore coasting through the last few days of work.
I have a meeting with HR later this week to get my walking papers. Since I’m now pre-unemployed, I might as well have a beer with lunch today.

Since you have not yet been employed full time you are not considered unemployed by the government. This describes the limbo period from when you graduate from College/University and you find a job.

Generally a "Pre-Unemployed" person moves back in with their parents and works odd jobs until a career in their field of study is found.

It is usually a soul crushing period of ones life.

In recent years due to the Recession the number of "Pre-Unemployed" people has grown tremendously.
Thank god I got a job offer before graduation, My sister didn't and she has been Pre-Unemployed for almost a year.
