The definition of partial unemployment in Florida is if earnings for a week of less than full-time employment are less than your weekly benefit amount. Florida disregards earnings 8 x the federal minimum hourly wage (6.55) when computing your benefit amount for partial unemployment.

Whether you get partial unemployment depends on this: The information here.

To get the maximum weekly benefit amount in Florida you need to earn at least $550 a week and some other finely tuned requirements.

If the above is true and your wages are cut in half to $275 and then 8 x 6.55 or 52.40 is disregarded you will then receive a weekly benefit amount of 52.40

So as long as half wages don't exceed 275 a week you should get something, even if it isn't much.
