Interview participants individually and make assignments as appropriate.  Before assigning a Site, the ECM shall:

·  Assure that the assignment is agreed upon by the ECM and the participant and that it meets the employment goals identified on the form 27-301 HHSA and/or 27-01 HHSA, if applicable.


 

Change of Activity Assignment

The participant may request a change of component assignment within three days of signing the WTW Plan.  The WTW Plan for WEX/CSR also provides that the participant has 30 days to request a change or re-assignment once the WEX/CSR assignment has begun.  The 30-day grace period shall be available only once during the participant’s enrollment in WTW.  If the re-assignment request is consistent with an assessment and granted by the ECM the WTW Plan must be revised by completing a revised a new WTW 2. 

 

Employment Staff may determine that a change of assignment is required.  In this scenario the ECM must:

·  Discuss the need for re-assignment with the participant.

·  Work with the participant to select a new assignment.

·  Complete a WTW 2.

·  Complete and distribute copies of the Attendance/Progress Report (27-302 HHSA).
