What is Unemployment Compensation?

Unemployment compensation gives partial, temporary income to workers who lose their jobs through no fault of their own, and are able and available for work. The purpose is to provide assistance to jobless workers, their families, and the business community.
Who Pays for It?

You, the employer, pay for unemployment compensation through a tax managed by the Florida Department of Revenue. It is one of your business costs. Workers do not pay unemployment tax and employers must not make payroll deductions for this purpose. The consumer bears this cost in the price of the goods or services you sell. Thus, the burden of unemployment is shared by all. Your payments go into a fund from which monies are paid to eligible claimants. After a qualifying period, employers with a stable employment history will receive a lowered tax rate.
