A person who refused to accept a job must be given the chance to explain why they did not accept the job. To be a bona fide offer of employment the following factors must be resolved:
- there was a definite offer of suitable employment confirmed in writing by the prospective employer, and the wages offered must meet minimum wage standards and be customary for that type of work in the community; and
- there is no question that the client could physically do the work demanded, or that the client can get to and from the job; and
- there are no problems with working conditions, such as risks to health, safety, or lack of workers' compensation protection.
