Appropriate work or training is defined by DHS, the VOLAG, or the job placement agency and must meet the following criteria:
The Refugee Job Placement Agency and the VOLAG have primary responsibility for deciding when a client has quit or failed or refused to apply for an appropriate job, or failed or refused to attend job skills or English language training.
When the Family Community Resource Center learns that a client has quit a job, failed or refused to apply for a job, failed or refused to accept a job offer or to attend training, the Family Community Resource Center begins the reconciliation process (see PM 03-13-04). Decide if the job or training is appropriate. If the Family Community Resource Center decides that the job or training is appropriate, sanction the client if reconciliation is not successful.
