    I Got Fired/Laid Off Today....Question

    Pay cuts, added responsibilty, broken promises, etc. Yeah, I've been unhappy for a while. And those scumbags have been looking for a reason to get rid of somebody. And today was the last straw. I could have saved my job. But I was tired of being abused.

    Anyway, I've been offered a 2-week severence package. Obviously I'd rather bleed them to death via unemployment. My question is, what are the rules of unemployment. What I mean is, how many times can they refuse you before you win out?? This company fights unemployment tooth and nail. So I know he'll (the owner) refuse to pay it.

    And if I sign anything (with that company in regards to my layoff), does that forfeit my right to unemployment?? I have to go up there tomorrow and pick up something I purchased yesterday.

    Thanks dude. Hopefully something will come along soon. It's rough out there now. And I'm just a 23-year old kid trying to survive.

    I've got a tentative lunch interview with a guy in Pinellas Park. So hopefully I can get that job. The thing is, if I get it, he's going to fire the other guy. There's only room for one. But I can't think about that.

    It might be different state by state, but here in New York you can collect unemployment and severance at the same time. One of my parents was getting severance for like 5 months, and getting unemployment at the same time a year and a half ago. I know you can collect unemployment for 39 weeks.

    Sounds like state to state for sure. I live in Virginia and you can only collect it here for 16 weeks

    Type in "Florida unemployment laws" in google . There's a bunch in there you can find.

    Good luck. Hope you find a better one soon.

    Appears the limit is 26 weeks here. And the ceiling is $275 a week, although most get half. Looks like I'll be seducing my case worker tomorrow.

    Hope you get laid instead of laid off if that's the case .

    i don't know how the employment laws in florida work. here in calif you can sign anything and that does not affect unemployment compensation nor can an employer refuse to pay. the employer here pays unemployment insurance and it doesn't affect one person!

    hope you get back to work real soon, but make that sucker bleed a little first!
