Florida Unemployment Phone Number

The Florida Department of Labor, formally called the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation, is the organization you need to get in touch to make a labor complaint or file for jobless benefits. The State of Florida makes contacting the agency simple, and there are numerous ways to do so.

Contact the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation by telephone by calling 1-800-204-2418. The phones at the Florida unemployment office answer from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m, Monday through Friday.

Be set for long waits as lots of people are trying to do the same thing that you are. Be serene and courteous to the person you get connected to and you will get a lot more help. The staffers on the other line are over-worked and are everything possible they can to assist all of the people that are contacting them.

 When you call the PA unemployment phone number, ensure that you have:

  • Social security number,
  • Dates of employment
  • Names and addresses of your employers,
  • Gross earnings, and your
  • Driver’s license number

You will also need a pen and paper to write down your claim number and any other relevant details.

  1. I work for a major grocery chain. As a part-timer, I was typically scheduled weekly (the schedule was made week to week and varied) around 30-35 hours. Last Sunday, the store I worked at for over 11 years was closed by the company, as they were ‘rebranding’ the division, and my old store did not fit in with the “new concept”. I and all of my fellow employees were transferred to different stores. As a result, last week I was given 5 1/2 hours in my new store. This week, I have been scheduled for 8 hours. I could not survive on the 35 or so I WAS being paid, so I certainly haven’t a chance on 5 1/2 – 8. Can I collect either regular or partial unemployment, as the cut back in hours was due to circumstances beyond my control (the store closing), and it does not look as if I will be getting any more?

    1. Todd,

      You can be eligible for partial UI benefits if you were hired for full-time employment and the hours were reduced. Please call the Unemployment Office for more information.

  2. I called you guys this morning around 9 in the morning. And I was told I would get a phone call within 2 hours. 5:36 p.m. is not 2 hours. When I called you back it stated that you were close at 5. So how do I get in touch with you?

    1. Anita,

      Please note this is a private forum and we do not have any connection with the Unemployment Office in your state. You can try calling back on the same phone number to reconnect.

  3. I was unemployed before I applied for this job during the Christmas time. They promised me part-time which is between 25 to 28 hours a week. The first week they allowed me to work 40 hours. The second week they dropped it to 32. Week after that they dropped it to 27. Now I’m being told because I reported my manager from stealing my sales that I can be considered part-time from 0 hours to 32. He is now scheduling me one day a week at 6 hours. There is no way in the world I can afford working here. I asked if I was considered holiday employee why wasn’t I not told so. They will not fire you because they don’t want to lose their credit for hiring unemployed people. Is this legal? Can I apply for unemployment again?
