Scott Signs Bill that Limits Unemployment Compensation Benefits

On Monday, June 27, 2011, Governor Rick Scott signed into law several bills, including a cut unemployment compensation benefits that has been pushed this past year by the state's business community.

HB 7005, Chapter Law 2011-235, cuts the number of weeks available for benefits from 26 weeks to 23 weeks. But the final measure also ties the number of weeks to the state's unemployment rate. That means if the state's jobless rate drops below 10.5 percent then the number of benefit weeks will also drop.

The legislation also makes it easier for businesses to win claim disputes in court, and requires those receiving benefits to go through a skills analysis as well as prove that they have tried to find work from at least five employers a week.
