Florida-If I accept an "on-call" job, will I lose my unemployment benefits.
(altamonte springs, florida)
I am currently receiving unemployment benefits from an office closure in which I worked for 15 years. I have been receiving benefits since February. I was called in for an interview for an "on-call" position at the local hospital. If I get that job, would I lose my Florida Unemployment benefits?
You won't lose your benefits, but the amount you receive will be adjusted to a partial amount.
Florida disregards earnings equaling 8 times the federal minimum wage .. which is due to go up any day now. After they disregard that amount they reduce your weekly benefit amount dollar dollar of what you earn.
If you started filing in Feb. you are due to exhaust benefits soon. collecting partial will make them last a bit longer. You also need to be aware that when they do exhaust you should be entitled to an extension .. so make sure you find out if you're qualified for it and do anything the state requires of you to get it.
