Did you apply for unemployment compensation in the last 2 years?

Monday, May 13, 2013

Did you lose or get denied unemployment benefits for reasons you think are due to either your disability or your ability to speak English?

Image of words The federal government recently told the State of Florida that it is not treating persons with disabilities and persons who are not fluent in English fairly in the Unemployment Compensation program (now called Reemployment Assistance). If you are one of those people, you may be able to complain about what happened to you and get the benefits you lost. You must act immediately.  The deadline is June 4th.

Please contact your local legal services program for further information on preparing a complaint. To find your local legal services program go to http://www.FloridaLawHelp.org or you may contact Disability Rights Florida.
