Good cause reasons for not appearing for a REDE include (but are not limited to):
- death in the family;
- illness or incapacity of the client or child(ren);
- family crisis;
- unexpected emergency;
- breakdown in transportation;
- inclement weather;
- a conflict in the client's work schedule; or
- a conflict in a client's appointment or participation in a work and training activity, Young Parents Services, or Child Support Enforcement.
If a client has a job and their work hours conflict with the Department's office hours, make special arrangements to complete the REDE without requiring the client to miss work.
