Florida Unemployment Eligibility

In order to establish unemployment eligibility in Florida you have to:

1. Be a resident of Florida. If you are not a resident of Florida, but worked in Florida at your last job, you should still have Florida unemployment eligibility.
2. Have worked and earned income in Florida.
3. You must not be disabled.
4. You must be able to work.
5. You must be actively looking for a new job.
6. You must have lost your job through no fault of your own. If you quit your job or were fired for 'just cause' you may not be eligible to collect unemployment in Florida. Every case is different, so if you lost your job -- be sure to apply to unemployment in case you are indeed eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

There are special rules that apply to unemployment elibility for military personnel and union workers, so check with your mility or union representative for these rules.

No you can not . I had to relocate for family reasons after just having found a job and was not allowed to reopen my claim. They said it was personal and disallowed me from reopening my claim. Worst mistake I ever made. I live in Florida too

I was receiving benefits for a year before being cut off.I applied for extended benefits but was told I was not monetarily eligible to receive any more benefits.My question,first of all,is what is meant by "monetarily eligible"? Also,should I still try to apply for benefits regardless of the aforementioned determination?

wouldn't that be sweet if we could do that, but sorry to dissapoint you. You have to be either fired, laid off, or able to prove an exceptionally good reason (e.g., the job re-located to a place where there was no public transportation and you don't drive) . You have to be considered "available and able" to work, when benefits are paid out, under any circumstance. So if you said its because you need to attend school, they may consider giving you Part time equivalent while you seek Part time employment. I have heard of such a thing before.

I am currently employeed with the florida department of corrections. I have accepted to be going to school full time. I also am waiting to have surgery on my rotator cuff on my left shoulder. Which if i do, will be out of work for at least a year but at the same time i will not be able to do the time of work required by the department of corrections. I also have permanet back and neck problems that make it next to impossible to do the qork required now. If i was to leave the department of correctinos based on those reasons, why i be able to qualify for umemployment.

I moved to Florida at the first of May being told by my employer that my transfer was approved. When I arrived in Florida it took 2 weeks for the company to finally call and say that the transfer finally came through the system but they were taking me back to my starting pay(when I got hired) and that there wouldn't be very many hours available. At my original store(in Alabama) I averaged about 33-40 hours a week and at the new store(in Florida) I am being scheduled around 15-20.Do I qualify for unemployment?

I also worked for a call center. They definitely put the pressure on you to "perform" to their standards. They made up some odd ball reason for "firing" me. DO NOT QUIT! The Department of Unemployment will ask the employer the reason for the firing, and the company didn't have a leg to stand on......I collect benefits.......that was my case, I can only go by what hap to me..........

I have been working full time for the past three years with glowing performance evaluations. My employer is going with another office management company at the beginning of the New Year. I interviewed with this company as instructed in the hope of being retained in my same position and location. But the new company offered me a staff relief position at my same salary...only I would be required to commute to different offices on a daily basis to locations up to 3.5 hours away, which is not advisable due to a medical condition that has not been a factor in my present position as I only have to drive five miles away. Since they did not even offer to compensate me for travel or offer a significant raise besides...can I reasonably refuse this offer without impacting my ability to collect unemployment insurance should the need arise?

We broke up and obviously I no longer work for her. She was my only source of income and since the break up I don't have any income. Will I qualify for unemployment in this case.

My job is extremely low paying (mere cents above minimum wage) and does not offer healthcare insurance. I work with very young children. I'm constantly sick and having to call in. I've been exposed to and gotten sick with strep throat, scarlet fever, walking pneumonia, and a slew of other sicknesses these 1-4 yr old kids have. I cannot afford to go to the doctor because I don't have any health insurance or any moneyy to pay for a walk in clinic. I'm thinking about quitting. There are many other things wrong with the place I work. Would I be eligible for unemployment as I search for another job?

probibly not but you can always try...you may just get denied. As far as health insurance you can apply for medicaid through the food stamps website with DCF. You may get approved for full medicaid benifits or share of cost depending on your income and things like that...they will give it to your kids for free regardless due to your place of employment not offering health coverage.

I used to be a full-time employee but a couple years ago my boss had to cut back on expenses and made me a part-time employee (work 4 days a week). I have done this for a couple years now. Now my boss who is 81 is retiring and closing down the business in the next month or two. I only take home about $225.00 a week now working part-time. Will I be able to draw unemployment when the office is closed in a month or so and approximately how much would I be able to receive. I will be looking for another job but seems no one is hiring in the little town I live in. Thank you.

My employer has given me a Separation Agreement to review and choose to sign or reject.

I was verbally told my position was terminated, but it does not state that in the Separation Agreement nor does it state anywhere that it was "no fault of my own".

What does that mean as far as meeting criteria for unemployment?
Thanks

2: I have witnesses that have seen and heard my boss calling me a B%^ch and telling me F^%K you. Also throwing coasters at my face.
3. My boss is constantly sexually harassing me and my co workers even though we have told him to stop.
4. My doctor advised me that the cigarette smoke in the bar where I work is very dangerous now that I am pregnant.
Question- am I eligible for unemployment? I have worked for this company for 2 years FULL TIME

Get proof and written statements from everyone that has wittnesses something or police statements of the harrassment. File a claim for unemployment. State your reasons in detail and when you supply proof you have aquired, you have to submit it to unemployment and also to the employer. I made the mistake of not submiting my proof to my employer but thankfully still won my case on other circumstances...and again every case is different. All you can do is try...apply, prove your case, and hope for the best. Good luck to you!

I have now been on the job for 5 weeks but have found it to be a hostile work environment. Since I am still in my probationary period and not yet a permanent employee, am I eligible for unemployment comp still? Making less $$ than I am used to is a better deal than the stress I am going through.

I told my boss I need to switch my schedule but he choose not to switch it and just took off the conflicting days. I now work 16 hours a week. Can I be approved for unemployment even though "its my fault" for my hours being cut back. I only wanted to change shifts... It is looking as if they may even cut those 16 hours soon due to me "putting them in a spot". Any help is appreciated.

I am not sure what situation I am in. I was in a car accident in Sept. of this year. I have been going to physical therapy since the accident. I have ran out of savings and my car insurance benefits have been exhausted. I am currently under the FML Act for my time off but that time is running out this week. Majority of my job consists of sitting down and I am unable to do that comfortably as well as I still have constant back pain. Would I be able to file for unemployment if I am not able to go back to work due to my injury or do I have to file for short term disability? I just need a way to pay my bills until I am somewhat better to work again. It's like being caught between a rock and a hard place. My job won't let me come back if I am not well and my doctor is not going to release me to work bc I am still not far into recovery. What do I do?!?! I need to survive.

If my job changes from FT Regular with benefits and hours, to Flexible with Zero hours guaranteed, or you can resign, and if you resign does that disqualify you from applying for unemployment. Change in position is because of Business Based Action where there is not sufficient funds to maintain your position at current. No fault of the employee having to choose. And if you accept the Flex position and have zero hours, can you file under loss of wages?

Then i moved to 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Now im on 10 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.. The problem now is we have a new manager and now she changing everyone schedule. I talked to her the other day and informed her its no way i can work past 6:30 cause my babysitter has to leave n get her kids off to school and daycare. They are changing my schedule to 11 p.m. to 7:30 a.m.. I specifically told her i got hired because it was flexible and its no way i can work past 6:30 cause i have kids also and i have to get my son up and ready for school. Im just wondering what to do from here because they say the new schedule goes into effect on June 9th and its no way i can change. Will i be able for unemployment benefits.

If an employed person is laid off due to job position being eliminated and is given severance pay, when can the then unemployed person file for unemployment benefits?

My wife & I work together. Company sold out. New company did not hire us. The joint severance letter we received from our employer stated $15,000 severance total for both of us. With $15,000 in my mind, when I signed up for unemployment, I mistakenly put $15,000 severance instead of $7500. How can I fix this error?

I worked for Govt. for over 20 yrs. Last year we were informed there would be 23 positions eliminated before the end of our fiscal year (09/30/12). As an incentive to reduce personnel they offered a time frame to take a buy out. If enough employees did not accept the buy out, positions would be eliminated. (this turned out to be the case and other positions would still need to be eliminated). I addressed management. and was told they could not tell me if my position was at risk for that year but, they advised me my position would definitely be eliminated in the next fiscal year. (which it was). We were given to the middle of August 2012 to accept the buyout, knowing my position would definitely be eliminated in the next fiscal year I felt forced into taking the buyout. My last day of employment was September 2012. I was told by several people that I should file for unemployment due to my reduced income and financial situation I would like to know if I qualify for unemployment benefits?
