Four days after the Orlando Sentinel published a story about the Florida unemployment application site, Florida Gov.
Rick Scott said the state will begin requiring applicants to submit photos of their jobs before submitting an application.
The state is considering a bill that would require employers to submit photo identification when they hire a person, Scott said at a news conference.
Scott, a Republican, is considering the bill, and other Republicans are considering similar legislation.
In a statement, Florida unemployment administrator Susan Bader said she has not heard of a case in which a job applicant has not been able to get a job after submitting a photo identification.
Scott’s proposal comes after the Sentinel reported that some employers are asking for photos of the applicants they’re hiring to show that they can provide services.
The newspaper reported that applicants who did not have photo ID had been denied jobs and that employers were trying to get them to submit their photos.
The Sentinel reported on Feb. 13 that Florida employers were asking for applicants to provide photo identification in order to be considered for hiring.
The report also reported that an additional 2,200 jobs had been lost in Florida as a result of the unemployment system’s hiring practices.
Scott has ordered a review of the hiring practices, but he has said that it’s up to employers to find ways to find and fill jobs.
The job-seeking process was supposed to be an online process that would allow employers to apply directly to employees with jobs they’re searching for.
Employers would be given three weeks to match applicants with jobs.
Companies have been applying for workers on the job site, and employers are required to provide photos of themselves to the job application site.
The site does not require employers with 10 or more jobs to have an official photo ID.
