        If a minor parent who is an eligible child fails to comply with the school attendance requirement, the caseworker will remove the minor parent from the AU.

 

        If a minor parent who is an eligible adult (caretaker of his/her own case) fails to comply with the school attendance requirement or participate in a 30 hour work activity, his/her case will be closed.

 

        If good cause is established as a result of the conciliation process, the caseworker will continue benefits for the minor parent EC or reopen the case of the EA minor parent.

 

        If the minor parent does not have good cause, but is willing to comply, he/she must attend school for 5 days to be considered in compliance.

 

For detailed instructions for applying sanctions to the AU when an individual fails to comply with the school attendance requirement, refer to the Sanctions Chapter.
