Can I have work compensation?

The restaurant where I worked got shut down. The workers were informed of its closure only 3 weeks prior to its closing. I had been jobless for 3 months now, and borrowed a lot of money and got in debt, because it is very difficult to find a job, even though I submitted a lot of new work applications. Is there any way I could get a compensation from my previous work place?
