Federal and state laws and regulations mandate that non-exempt individuals comply with Cash Assistance (CA) employment requirements. A pro rata sanction is imposed on active multipleperson CA cases when a participant fails to comply willfully and without good cause with employment requirements.
First-time employment sanctions are nondurational for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Safety Net Assistance (SNA) family cases with children. First-time employment sanctions are durational for SNA cases without dependent children.
All subsequent sanctions, regardless of category, are durational and require that the sanction period be served and that the individual agree to comply with employment requirements, as applicable, before a sanction is lifted.
If the noncompliant individual is also required to participate in Food Stamp Employment and Training (FSET) activities, he/she is also sanctioned from the Food Stamp (FS) case. FS sanctions are durational.
