Citation: 5 N.J.A.R. 493
Decision Date: 1979
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: Petitioner requests relief from the decision of a local public welfare board terminating welfare assistance provided under the General As- sistance Program for a period of 90 days due to his alleged failure to participate in the General Assistance Employability Program (GAEP). Under GAEP, recipients, who are classified as employable, must comply with work requirements. The administrative law judge found that since petitioner was aware of the work requirements and had not established good cause for his refusal to comply with them, the penalty of termination of assistance for 90 days or until a willingness to work is demonstrated was ap-- propriate.
