  • Shift - Terminated Federal Florida

    Hi everyone! First time poster in need of some advice.

    Yesterday in the beginning of my shift my boss came in to let me know that after 7 years my overnight shift would be terminated. The good news is they can give me some shifts here and there during the day. I thought it was okay, I am a college student I can just restructure my classes. But after seeing what is available for the Fall semester I cannot continue working here.

    I am heart broken I love this company and cannot believe that my shift can just be gone. I am happy they will give me some shifts, but it does not help, and now I have to quit/find another job.

    Can I get unemployment?

    Unlikely. You very seldom are granted benefits if you quit and it's not the employer's fault your can't work the new schedule into your school schedule. Your best bet is to work all the hours you can and look for another job that fits you school schedule better, but don't quit until you find something else.

      Agree, you generally don't get UI benefits if you quit. Maybe while working this job you can find another job before fall. Good luck to you.

        If you accept the occasional day shifts being offered, you may well be eligible for partial unemployment benefits. Take what's being offered, apply for UC, and look for another job that fits with your school schedule. Good luck.

            Yep, good point.

            Fl. - Any individual who is currently unemployed or partially unemployed can file a claim.

              You can and should always file the claim...it is up to the state whether or not you receive benefits.
              Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

              I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.
