Any nonexempt client who fails or refuses to comply with SNAP E & T requirements without good cause is subject to a sanction (see PM 21-06-10-d for good cause). SNAP E & T
staff make the decision on whether or not to sanction a client. Clients are only sanctioned for failing to comply with the requirements included in PM 21-06-03 and
Before a decision to sanction a client is sent to the Family Community Resource Center, SNAP E & T staff will have attempted conciliation with the client. See PM 21-06-09 for conciliation. If
conciliation is successful, the client is not sanctioned.
If conciliation ends unsuccessfully, the nonexempt client is sanctioned. The sanction is for 2 fiscal months or until the client meets the SNAP E & T requirement, whichever occurs first.
If the Family Community Resource Center learns that a nonexempt client has failed or refused to accept a job, quit a job, or voluntarily reduced wages, advise SNAP E & T staff. SNAP E & T decides whether or not to sanction the client.
