I have an employee which I terminated him before 90 days because poor performance and did not have any coaching just the 90 days Performance Evaluation. He signed and was agreed with it. Now, he got approved the unemployment benefits.
Florida is an at-will employment state. As long as you do not sign an employment contract with an individual that states otherwise, you can fire an employee without cause.
As far as unemployment benefits, any worker can file for unemployment benefits and might receive them. Florida charges businesses what's called a "reemployment tax" which you might be paying, depending on your company's situation. Your business's unemployment insurance should have received the claim and asked you about the nature of the termination.
You should contact your unemployment insurance company or payroll company and you should ask if you will have an increase in your insurance or taxes. If you have further questions, you should contact a local employment attorney.
