Families First Online Policy Manual
Failure to Cooperate With Work Requirements
Eligible assistance unit adults who are not
exempt from work are required to have a 30-hour PRP work requirement. Non-exempt adults must be in compliance
with their work activity or face possible sanction if good cause for
non-compliance does not exist. This
includes adults with a modified work plan who may not be able to participate
for 30 hours due to an ADA-covered disability. Remember that individuals who are
sanctioned prior to the discovery
If an individual has FSC activities being counted toward Job Search/Job Readiness hours and he/she fails to participate in FSC, the non-compliance will result in a sanction. Bulletin 37, FA-08-28
In two-adult families, this could affect either one or both adults (Refer to the discussion on non-compliance and absence rules in the Work Requirements Chapter).
Note: If either parent in a two-parent AU is sanctioned, the entire AU will be ineligible.
A Families First sanction for non-compliance with the work requirement will:
· Cause ineligibility of the entire AU.
· Continue until the adult is in compliance.
Note: If an employed individual is fired (without good cause), treat the action as non-compliance with a work activity.
