Florida – Governor Ron Desantis Signs HB 1463

On May 7th, Governor Ron Desantis signed and enacted HB 1463. The house bill makes major changes to unemployment claim procedures by:

  • Revising timeline for employers’ responses to notices of benefits claims sent by DEO from 20 days to 14 days after the mailing date of the notice
  • Authorizes employers to initiate employer-assisted claims relating to mass separations
  • Requiring that the state implement an integrated, modular system hosted in cloud service for reemployment assistance program

What does this mean for Florida employers? 

The first and most important change to note for employers is the claims response time from 20 days to 14 days after the mailing date of the notice.

From there, many employers may be inquiring about the provisions of an employer-assisted claim filing. In the event an employer pursues a mass layoff of more than 1000 employees, they can elect to file an employer-assisted claim on behalf of the laid-off employees. The employer is required to inform employees that they have elected to do this on their behalf. It is the responsibility of the claimant to file biweekly claims after the point of employer-assisted filing to be eligible for benefits.

Lastly, although not directly affecting employers, they should also note a large technological change for the reemployment assistance program, as this will likely mean that there are many more changes in the immediate future for Floria’s claims processing.

CCC will keep you up to date on any future changes.
