The Reemployment Assistance program provides temporary, partial wage replacement benefits to qualified workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.  It is funded solely by employers who pay federal and state payroll taxes and is provided at no cost to the workers who receive the benefits.

File an Appeal

An employer who receives an adverse determination has the right to protest that determination and participate in a hearing before an appeals referee. Employer appeals are filed online using CONNECT. Upon receiving an appeal, a hearing will be scheduled involving all interested parties to address the issues. The parties will be mailed a Notice of Hearing telling them when the hearing will be held. 

File a Response

As an employer, it is required that you respond to all documents and forms electronically using Florida’s Reemployment assistance claims system, CONNECT, unless otherwise exempt. It is extremely important that you respond in a timely manner in order to properly manage your reemployment tax, benefit charges and prevent Reemployment Assistance fraud.
