FAILURE TO COMPLY - MINORS WHO ARE NOT PARENTS

Table of Contents

 

        If the child fails to attend school as required, the caseworker will contact the caretaker to determine if the information is correct or if good cause exists.

 

        If good cause exists and is verified, the caseworker will continue the benefits.

 

        A formal conciliation is not required.

 

        If good cause does not exist, the caseworker will complete the appropriate eligibility and case management system screens to implement the 20% reduction in benefits sanction.

 

        If the AU later complies, the caseworker will remove the sanction the next possible month.

 

For detailed instructions for applying sanctions to the AU when an individual fails to comply with the school attendance requirement, refer to the Sanctions Chapter.
