(a)   The household has the primary responsibility for providing verification of questionable information related to the voluntary quit/reduction and good cause determination.

 

When it is difficult or impossible for the household to obtain evidence in a timely manner, the county will offer to assist the household. Acceptable sources of verification include but are not limited to:

 

1.      the previous or current employer;

2.      employee associations;

3.      union representatives;

4.      grievance committees and organizations; and

5.      when documentary evidence cannot be obtained, the caseworker is responsible for obtaining verification from acceptable collateral contact provided by the household.

 

(b)    When the circumstances of the quit/reduction cannot be verified for good reasons, the individual member will not be denied participation in the program. Examples of good reasons are resignation from employment due to discriminatory practices or unreasonable demands by the employer, or because the employer cannot be located.
