? You can expect to work in a safe environment. Private employers may be fined for unsafe working conditions under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act. The Florida Workers’ Compensation law[1] provides protection for workers injured on the job. If you are injured, you must notify your employer immediately to ensure your rights are protected. Finally, unemployment compensation provides payments to individuals who have lost their jobs through layoffs or other specific reasons.[2] To get more information, contact the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, http://www.floridajobs.org/job-seekers-community-services/reemployment-assistance-center/claimants
