  • Unemployment Florida

    I was receiving unemployment benefits from my last employer and they decided to appeal. I was working in the state of Florida. I was working on a temporary assignment through a temporary agency. I was told that I was being let go from the project due to attendance. When I spoke with the temporary agency I was told that I could still work for the agency when something became available. I was also told that I was being let go due to tardies and not attendance ( dont know if that would fall under same category). I was collecting unemployment from the agency not from the company the temporary assignment was for. They also stated in their appeal that I was given prior warnings about my "attendance" however I was never given a warning, verbal or written. Is it possible for the hearing to go in my favor? I mean I am still able to work for my actual employer, just was not allowed to continue working for that project.

    You can try. The fact that you were not warned that your attendance (which includes tardies) was a problem is in your favor. However, you have to know that clients of staffing agencies often expect excellent attendance (even more than would be expected of regular employees of the client).
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
