Ariz. Admin. Code § R6-3-53510 - Work, Nature of (refusal of Work 510)

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

A. Customary (Refusal of Work 510.1)
1. Occupation refers to the type of work a claimant was performing and not the industry in which he worked.
2. Customary occupation may be defined as follows:
a. The occupation in which an individual has developed his highest skill either through experience, training, or education; or
b. The occupation in which he has developed a skill through progressive steps of advancement, even though he has worked in such occupation for a relatively short period of time; or
c. The occupation in which he was engaged the longest period of time, when his work history indicates experience in a number of occupations involving related skills; or
d. The only occupation in which the claimant has engaged.
3. If during the adjustment period (Refer to R6-3-53295 ) a claimant has a good prospect of obtaining work in his customary occupation, he would have good cause for refusing other work. Conversely, if it is apparent there is little opportunity of obtaining work in his customary occupation he would not have good cause for refusing suitable work outside his customary occupation.
B. Light or heavy work (Refusal of Work 510.35). To be suitable, the offered work must be within the claimant's physical limitation.
