  • Mandatory pay cut. Florida

    The company that I work for lowered all of the employees salaries including mine. I did not think that it would affect me as much as it has. I am now one month into the salary decrease and I am realizing that I am barely paying for my essentials. I have been with the company for seven months and was supposed to get a raise a month ago instead the company reduced salaries and announced that there would be no raises this year. I might be going into debt soon if I do not find a better job. I also work 10 hour days, and we are not allowed to take any time off, so searching for a job is very hard in my situation. If I resigned it would allow me to have the time to find a new job before I am in real financial trouble. Would I be eligible to receive unemployment benefits if I resigne with this company due to the mandatory pay cut, until I find a better employment?

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      Almost certainly, no.

      You MIGHT be eligible for partial benefits if the cut was deep enough. Couldn't hurt to file and find out. Although I don't know the details of the Florida law, in my current state of Pennsylvania, you don't qualify if you are working full-time, no matter at what rate.

      Most job searches are done on the internet these days anyway. Prospective employers understand time constraints and will do their best to work with you if they are interested.
