1105.025.50.20 Providing Sufficient Information to Determine Employment Status or Job Availability

IM-#98 August 31, 2005,  IM-#103 October 4, 2004

When an EU member who is being sanctioned or is sanctioned because s/he would not provide sufficient information to determine employment status or job availability, agrees to provide information needed to make the determination, go to the Employment Assessment (FMMS) screen, add the appropriate work assessment code, and change the individual’s status from MNC to the appropriate code. If the individual agrees to provide information within 30 days from the date of application, go to the Sanction/Disqualification (FMAM) screen and delete the sanction. Refer to Deleting a Sanction or Disqualification user guide. If eligible, the individual is eligible for benefits for the month of application if s/he has served the mandatory sanction period.

If the individual is included in an active EU when s/he provides sufficient information to determine employment status or job availability, end the sanction. The individual is eligible for benefits the month following the month in which s/he complies. FAMIS adds the individual to the EU for the month following the month in which s/he complied.
