  • Unemployment Question – Change in hours Florida

    I will try to make this a simple as possible. I use to work from 8 to 5. Then due to a few reasons I was unable to work that schedule anymore. My employer agreed to change my hours to morning hours and I have been working them for about 5 months now. They are trying to get me to work more afternoon hours now but I will no be able to. If they let me go because they need someone to work 8 to 5 again and I am unable to, would I qualify for unemployment? From what I have been reading it doesn’t seem like it but I’m not sure. I am just trying to be as prepared as I can be in case I do lose my job because of the scheduling conflict.

    Without knowing the reason, it's unlikely. The employer isn't responsible for the fact that, for whatever reason, you are not able to work the hours they want you to.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
