Florida unemployment and temp agencies

by MW
(Florida)

I was placed in a full time job two years ago by a staffing firm. I was recently let go because of the economy. Am I eligeable for unemployment?

Thanks


Hi MW,

You did not specify what type of staffing agency, but if it was a temp agency......Most states have special provisions for temporary workers.

According to this chartbook published by the USDOL Florida has a law that does require a worker to contact the staffing agency for another assignment. If they do not have one for you, it would be a lack of work...until they call you. You then have to be careful about what if any assignments you turn down because it could create a refusal of work issue and that is disqualifying also.
