There is not enough space here to list them.   A denial of unemployment benefits is based upon:

1. The unemployment statutes of the specific state.

2. How that state interprets their unemployment statutes to determine whether "good cause" existed to either fire a person or whether a person quit with "good cause" per the statutes.

Not all, but most ... Including Florida, require that to establish good cause to quit a job the reason must be "attributable to the employment".  Any exception to this is covered under added provision or an exception to this requirement.  Provisions are also in the statutes.  

For an employer to prove good cause for a discharge, they need to show that the fault lies with the employee.  When employers have to pay unemployment to a person that should not get it, the reason can usually be traced to errors the employer made in adhering to their own policies or their misconception about what actually constitutes "willful misconduct" which is what they must prove.

It is extremely difficult to find information about Florida unemployment that explains how they interpret their unemployment statutes.  In some states you can uncover the information by searching for terms like "unemployment precedent decision manual" or digest, or interpretation index.  It is in interpretation information that you find what you need to apply to your situation.

I was recently dismissed for my job after working there for nine years. I was never late, never called in sick and always helped others. I was told I was being dismissed because I allegedly "gossiped", but was never told what I supposedly said. I live in Florida. Can I be denied unemployment?
