  • Employment manual in FL asking to waive rights Florida

    Been at a doctors office where the doctor sold the practice. New employer wants us to sign manual stating that "only those employes terminated without cause or laid off due to slow down in business will be elligible to collect unemployment benefits." Can he force us to waive unemployment claims if fired? Can this even be agreed to?

    Your state's UI board makes the final determination on if UI benefits are extended or not. This provision would be unenforceable.

    The statement is defining the general circumstances that workers would be eligible for UI benefits. Generally a worker will qualify for benefits if he/she was laid off or discharged for no-cause. Of course exceptions exist. My guess is that this policy was written to advise that they'd contest UI under all other circumstances. It does not mean they'd prevail on appeal; that decision is at the sole discretion of your state's UI board.

      And, such a clause wouldn't be enforceable anyway. I wouldn't worry about it.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
