Ariz. Admin. Code § R6-3-53170 - Employment Office or Other Agency Referral (refusal of Work 170)

Current through Register Vol. 48, No. 14, April 8, 2022

A. General (Refusal of Work 170.05)
1. A disqualification should not be considered until it is clear that the claimant has had sufficient time to consider the offer or referral. While a claimant should need little or no time to determine whether he will accept work which does not differ from his customary work, he may need substantial time to think over acceptance of other types of work.
2. A statement of preference for a specific type of work is not necessarily a refusal of other work. An attempt by the claimant to get better terms or a more desirable referral without a rejection of the offer should not be considered a refusal.
B. Failure to report to employment office (Refusal of Work 170.15). A claimant's failure to respond as directed to a job service call in card or telephone call, regarding a possible referral to employment, shall not be treated as a refusal of work since neither instructions to apply for work nor a definite offer of work was given. The issue in such cases is the claimant's availability for the week in question and should be adjudicated in accordance with R6-3-52160(B) of these rules.
