Voluntary job quit sanctions can be cured or ended when it is verified when the individual will start a new job, the number of hours to be worked, and the rate of pay. The individual must work at least 30 hours per week at minimum wage or earn wages equivalent to the Federal minimum wage times 30 hours a week. The individual becomes exempt from work registration. When it is determined a sanctioned individual is exempt from work registration, update his/her work assessment code on the Employment Assessment (FMMS) screen. Go to the Sanction/Disqualification (FMAM) screen and enter reason code MAE (meets and exemption) and the end date. Complete an eligibility determination to add the individual back to the benefits.

NOTE: A voluntary job quit sanction cannot be ended by referring the individual to DWD to be registered for work.
