Welfare Work Rules 101

Welfare applicants and recipients face a daunting array of work requirements, and risk serious penalties for the slightest infraction or alleged failure to comply. But they also have a range of legal rights of which they are too often unaware, so these rights are inadequately protected. It is therefore critical for applicants, recipients, providers and advocates to know the rules and how to assert these rights. This introductory training provides an overview of the statutes, regulations, and policies governing the implementation of the welfare work rules in New York State.
