A person who refuses to accept a job must be given a chance to explain why they did not accept the job. To be a bona fide offer of employment, the following facts must be established:

  • there was a definite offer of suitable employment confirmed in writing by the prospective employer; and
  • there is no question that the client could physically do the work and 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.

When a client refuses a bona fide offer of employment without good cause, they may be sanctioned. When they state that they refuse to accept any job offer, apply the penalty for refusing to comply.
