PM 06-01-06-a: Persons Exempt from Work Registration

WAG 06-01-06-a

A person is exempt from work registration if the person:

  • is a child in the case;
  • is age 60 or over;
  • has a medical condition that prevents them from working;
  • is needed in the home to care for another person in the home due to the person's medical condition;
  • provides care for a child under age one who lives in the same home; or
  • is employed full-time (i.e., 30 or more hours per week or earning weekly wages at least equal to $217.50).

A refugee's inability to speak English does not exempt them from work registration requirements.

If neither parent or adult relative can claim an exemption, both persons are nonexempt.
