AboutUnemployment Compensation Program
Passed during the 2012 Legislative Session and was signed by Governor Rick Scott on March 28, 2012, renaming the Unemployment Compensation Program as the Reemployment Assistance Program. The renaming of the program emphasizes the job search activities and reemployment services suggested by Florida’s workforce colleagues to jobless claimants receiving benefits. Florida is the very first state in the nation to switch Unemployment Compensation to Reemployment Assistance.
