Unemployment Compensation Law
The majority of employees in Florida work “at-will,” which means they can be terminated from their position for any reason at any time. However, the “at-will” nature of the job also allows employees to choose to leave their respective jobs at any time. At-will employees who have been terminated by their employers may claim unemployment benefits, depending on the conditions of the termination.
An exception to “at-will” employment is a situation where employer and employee have agreed to terms outlined in a contract. An employment contract dictates the conditions of employment, including how and for what reasons an employee may leave or be terminated from his or her job. In either of these instances, retaining the services of experienced employment attorneys can help streamline the process and make all terms in the contract clear. Kirk S.
