A client may participate in Work Experience when:

  1. The client is unemployed.
  2. Participation is appropriate to help the client reach their employment goal.

Place the client in an available work assignment based on work history, prior training, experience, skills, and vocational preference.

Make the assessment during a face-to-face meeting with the client, after reviewing all available information in the case record. Coordinate the placement with the employment goal(s) in the Responsibility and Services Plan.

The person may participate in WE for as long as needed to reach their employment goal(s). Participation must be reassessed at least every 6 months, during the TANF REDE. Determine whether the client is gaining work skills and if there is a chance for employment. If continuing the work assignment will benefit the client, reassign them to the same or another work assignment. The client may also be approved for another activity.
