Table of Contents

 

        Voluntarily quitting a job without good cause by an eligible adult in a Families First AU will result in ineligibility of the AU until compliance.

 

        The voluntary quit provision applies to applicants and recipients.

 

        The voluntary quit provision applies to both full and part-time employment.

 

        A Families First AU with an adult member who voluntarily quits a job without good cause two months prior to applying for assistance or during the application processing months will be ineligible until compliance.

 

        A Families First AU that is receiving benefits and has an eligible adult member who voluntarily quits a job without good cause will be ineligible until compliance.

 

Note: This policy also applies to EAs who have been disqualified.

 

        An individual who voluntarily quits a job without good cause, and leaves one Families First assistance unit and joins another Families First assistance unit as an eligible adult, will cause the new assistance unit to be ineligible until the individual complies. The sanction will no longer apply to the AU with whom the individual previously resided.
