Prior to implementing a Work Provision sanction, the FCRC must determine if the customer had a good cause reason for not complying. Good cause includes situations beyond the customer's control, such as but not limited to:
NOTE:See PM 03-04-03-b for a definition of a lack of adequate child care.
NOTE:A job is "suitable employment" if:
NOTE:This includes but is not limited to working and not being paid on schedule.
NOTE:The customer must be enrolled at least half-time, and be in a recognized school, training program, or institution of higher education.
These types of workers may apply for benefits between jobs while waiting for work to open up at a new job site. Even though employment at the new job site has not actually begun, there is good cause for quitting the previous job if this is the normal pattern for this type of work.
