(Miami beach, fl)
My 1 yr old sons preschool changed it’s hrs from 6am – 12am to 6am – 7pm. My employer would not allow me to change my availability with the company and continued to schedule me after the preschool is closed. I eventually got fired for absences after exhausting every effort to reconcile the situation. I was denied unemployment benefits based on misconduct. My appeal is on Monday. I have some evidence in the form of letters I had written to regional and corporate offices regarding the matter. I also have a copy of the availability form I filled out. The state is Florida. Am I gonna win this??? Any suggestions???
Can you prove you made efforts to seek out other childcare for the hours your daycare decided to close.
Arranging childcare for the hours of availability you were made aware of by the employer is considered to the employees responsibility.
If you only show the efforts you made to get the accommodation from the employer .. you’re basically only showing half of the efforts you should have exhausted.
Hope this helps you to see the bigger picture of good cause in your case.
