N.J. Admin. Code § 10:87-10.7 - Verification of voluntary quit or work reduction and good cause

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) To the extent that the information given by the household is questionable as defined at 10:87-2.20, the CWA shall request verification of the household's statements.
(b) The primary responsibility for providing verification rests with the household.
(c) If it is difficult or impossible for the household to obtain documentary evidence in a timely manner, the CWA shall offer assistance to obtain the needed verification.
(d) Acceptable sources of verification include but are not limited to the previous employer, employee association, union representatives and grievance committees or organizations.
(e) Whenever documentary evidence cannot be obtained from the household member, the CWA shall substitute a collateral contact. The CWA is responsible for obtaining verification from acceptable collateral contacts provided by the household.
(f) If the household and the CWA are unable to obtain requested verification from the above or other sources because the cause for the quit or work reduction resulted from circumstances which for good reason cannot be verified, such as a resignation from employment due to discriminatory practices, unreasonable demands by an employer, or because the employer cannot be located, the individual or household shall not be denied access to the NJ SNAP program.
