I'm in Florida. My profession is self-employed so I didn't think I'd qualify for unemployment benefits and just burnt through my savings during the lockdowns. But then I kept seeing and hearing others in my profession getting Federal "Pandemic Unemployment Compensation" so I was told to apply through Florida DEO/CONNECT system just for them to turn me down and then I'd qualify for the federal PUA. So I applied 8/21/20 and I've provided every bit of information you could possibly imagine but they've "Locked me out" ever since. I've had to re-verify my ID over 100 times, I've called them hundreds of times and it just hangs up or I'm put on hold and have waited for over 4.5hrs just to be disconnected. I've requested help every which way possible dozens and dozens of times with no response. towards the beginning I got a letter in the mail that said I had to respond within 7 days but that letter arrived 2 days after the 7 day deadline! But I had already seen and taken care of on-line what the letter was about, thank God! And all I've needed Florida DEO to do is determine that I haven't worked for any employers who carried unemployment insurance in the last 2-3 years and to turn me down so that the federal PUA would kick in! Then on 4/2/21 my wife's employer remodeled their office and she had a "slip and fall" down the stairs which fractured 4 lumbar in her back which she's been bed bound recovering ever since. I've been doing my best taking care of my wife like an in-home nurse, and taking care of our 2 children. Recently our car was repossessed, we've sold every last asset/possession of value that we owned, our house has foreclosed and is going up to online auction this Tuesday 7/27/21. Our credit scores are in the dumps which triggered our car insurance rates to double(apparently Progressive monitors their customers credit reports) and home rental rates have skyrocketed. We've applied to rent at over a dozen places that charged us rental application fees(at $100+ a pop) just to turn us down. So we're probably going to be homeless in 2 weeks. But our faith is strong and our prayers are being heard as God has provided just enough to keep our family together and our health intact. We're not starving. Clearly the DEO/CONNECT system is intentionally broken or designed to not pay out benefits to hard working Floridians like myself. That it's actually designed to make us claimants just give up on any attempts to make a claim... #unemployment #FloridaDEO # #advice #benefits #florida
I work for a inventory company and they have briefings before every shift. They have been threatening us that if we don't work fast enough we will be sent home. We are expected to maintain a cph (count per hour) and it is unreasonably high. There is no way most of us can do that without guessing which would result in a inaccurate count which the whole point of our job is to provide a accurate inventory, and there are recounts done by the retail managers at the locations that we work. They stated last shift I worked that they are going to make a dedicated crew of the fastest people between two offices to give the majority of the hours to and also said some of us will be fired. Is this legal? It sounds like discrimination to me. I work hard and so do others we do our best at our job, we don't slack off, engage in unnecessary conversations with coworkers, or anything else that would affect our performance. Also we used to get a "3 minute break" once per shift but now told no breaks whatsoever, don't ask. Our shifts usually are about 6 hours. I thought you were entitled to a 15 minute break after 4 hours but im not sure. This job is in Florida. I really want to ask management about all this but afraid I will be fired or my hours cut even more. What should I do I'm already not getting enough hours to survive but a job is better than no job.
Does anybody have suggestions on collecting unemployment? I did the ID.ME and filed my claim with Florida DEO (mobile.connect.myflorida.com) on 5/18/21 and it is stuck at "Pending" ever since. I wrote my representative and they forwarded me to CONNECT. My account there is locked and every number that I call eventually hangs up on me. The Florida DEO no longer has online waiting. What are my next options? #unemployment #florida EDIT: Add state (FL) as most respondents seem to be in CA. I am also adding details (above & updates) that might make this process slightly less painful for future Floridians. UPDATE 12JUL21: I just called 833-352-7759 (FL DEO) and was able to request a call back. The call back was super helpful except that I was not at home, so I hope to repeat this process and access a similarly helpful person. I will try to reset my PIN at Connect (floridajobs.org) AGAIN and create an account at EmployFlorida.com
