WAC 192-140-090

What happens if I do not report for reemployment services as provided in RCW 50.20.010 (1)(e)?

The commissioner may direct you in writing to report in person for reemployment services.
(1) Exceptions. You will not be required to participate in reemployment services if you:
(a) Are a member of a full referral union and are eligible for dispatch and referral according to union rules;
(b) Are attached to an employer as provided in WAC 192-180-005; or
(c) Within the previous year have completed, or are currently scheduled for or participating in, similar services.
(2) Minimum services. The services will consist of one or more sessions which include, but are not limited to:
(a) Local labor market information;
(b) Available reemployment and training services;
(c) Successful job search attitudes;
(d) Self assessment of job skills and interests;
(e) Job interview techniques;
(f) The development of a resume or fact sheet; and
(g) The development of a plan for reemployment.
(3) Penalty. If you have received a directive, and fail to participate in reemployment services during a week, you will be disqualified from benefits for that week unless justifiable cause is demonstrated.
(4) Justifiable cause. Justifiable cause for failure to participate in reemployment services as directed will include factors specific to you which would cause a reasonably prudent person in similar circumstances to fail to participate. Justifiable cause includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Your illness or disability or that of a member of your immediate family;
(b) Conflicting employment or your presence at a job interview scheduled with an employer; or
(c) Severe weather conditions precluding safe travel.
Reasons for absence may be verified. In all such cases, your ability to or availability for work is in question.
