I have unemployment in Fl. and my previous employer is filing an appeal

by phil B

I have unemployment from my last employer that I quit from, but because of the quarters the employer before that one is being charged. So of course they are appealing. What do I have to do on the phone interview to keep my unemployment if this isn't the employer who did me wrong? What facts are they looking for? I quit the former employer fair and square so he actually owes me nothing...



First, they want to know if you quit with or without good cause and then the state should want to know if you did not quit with good cause, whether the subsequent employment provided enough wages to purge the Florida disqualification for a quit without good cause.

That, is to earn 17 times your weekly benefit amount in covered employment subsequent to the quit from this employer.

I worked @ the employer I filed against from april 5th 2010 to july 22 2010 and I more than made enough to cover the $4657.00 for the unemployment (roughly $11,000 in earned income for that period).
Plus they have awarded me the unemployment an I have been collecting for a few weeks now.



So it seems you have answered your own question .. right? And the employer is mainly concerned with charging provisions.

issues on docket
by: phil B

1st Separation- whether the claimant was discharged for misconduct connected with work or voluntarily left work without good cause as defined in the statue, pursuant to sect....

2nd Charges to employment record- whether benefit payments made to the claimant shall be charged to the employment record of the employer, pursuant to sections....( if employer charges are not at issue on the current claim, the hearing may determine charges on a subsequent claim).



Very possibly, but since I don't have dates of employment .. I can't say for sure.

Just prepare for the misconduct issue and be able to prove that you earned 17 times your WBA and you should be covered.

I think I already won the first by getting unemployment in the 1st case, Is the second one the real reason for the appeal, in either case what do I do???

Ready according to Section 443 "The quitting was with good cause attributable to the employer" and the approval I got originally stated "The Claimant left the job due to newly assigned duties which were contrary to the contract of hire"... but like I said this was against the employer I left, not the one that's appealing...This is so stupid I wish I knew I was supposed to quit on X date so I wouldn't have to fight with someone who has nothing to do with this other than having been my employer for a week and a half...So I only have to say what I originally said to get the unemployment so I can keep it???



What are the issues included on your hearing notice?

Sometimes the employer's need to appeal has nothing to do with you .. it has to do with being relieved of the charges associated with the payment of benefits.
