When a client appeals a sanction, follow normal appeal policy (see PM 01-07-00). At the request of the Family Community Resource Center, other staff involved in the sanction decision will attend pre-hearing meetings and/or appeal hearings to support their decision to sanction.
For clients who lose their appeal and had benefits continued during the appeal, impose the sanction for the next possible month. Do not send a new notice when the client loses an appeal. The notice of the hearing decision is enough. There is no overpayment since the client will still serve the sanction.
