WAC 192-140-090

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

(1) Written directives.
(a) The commissioner may direct you in writing to schedule a time to report in person for reemployment services. The written directive will contain a deadline by which you must schedule and participate in reemployment services.
(b) If you fail to schedule a time to participate in reemployment services by the deadline, you will be ineligible to receive benefits for the week containing the date of the deadline, unless you show justifiable cause.
(c) If you fail to participate in reemployment services at the time you scheduled, you will be ineligible to receive benefits for the week containing the time you scheduled, unless you show justifiable cause.
(d) The department may verify the reasons you failed to schedule or participate in reemployment services. In all such cases, your ability to work or availability for work may be questioned.
(2) 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;
(c) Are participating in a training program approved by the commissioner; or
(d) Within the previous year have completed, or are currently scheduled for or participating in, similar services.
(3) 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.
(4) Justifiable cause. Justifiable cause for failure to schedule or 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 schedule or participate in reemployment services. 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.
