What to do if my position will be eliminated soon but my employer refuses to tell me when I can expect my last day?

My non-profit has just gone through a merger and my position is being eliminated as a result. My new boss, however will not tell me when it will be eliminated, just that it will. It is preventing me from looking for another job and I believe that I am being unfairly treated by not being given the information necessary to find new employment after being laid off.
