NO!In 1937 when the Federal Government created unemployment benefits it was determined that a claimant must be able, available and actively seeking a 40 hour per week job.  A claimant, applying or receiving unemployment benefits put several different types of limitations on their availability to work a full-time position. These include:

– bonafide is generally defined as an offer that has been made in writing and/or directly with the claimant – a voicemail is not sufficient

– suitable – is generally accepted as the same pay, hours or duties or within 10%

To insure a denial be sure to keep record of the offer including:

* Date of the offer and how it was made
* Who made the offer
* What the offer was (pay, hours and duties)
* Start date
* How the offer was refused (by phone or email)
* Who received the refusal
* Reason for the refusal

To insure a denial be sure to get the restriction in writing by having current employees fill out a time off request or by having applicants indicate their availability on the application form.

Your organization should have a form that all leave of absence requests.  Be sure to have the all forms signed and dated by the claimant.

For employees on worker’s compensation, be sure to provide the paperwork proving the payments they are receiving related to your organization.
