The law in Florida requires disqualification from benefits if you are terminated from your employment for misconduct or voluntarily resign without good cause attributable to the employer. As of August 1, 2011, it is now more difficult for ex-employees to qualify as the definitions for misconduct has changed and there is no longer a policy of favoring the ex-employee. Before you leave an employment voluntarily, consult with an attorney who specializes in Unemployment law in Florida to see whether your circumstances could be considered good cause attributable to the employer. Good Luck!
