(1) Why do I receive a comprehensive evaluation?
You participate in a comprehensive evaluation with your case manager and other WorkFirst staff to determine:
(a) Your employment strengths, your educational background, family situation and other factors; and
(b) Which WorkFirst activities you need to become employed.
(2) What is the comprehensive evaluation and when will it be used?
(a) The comprehensive evaluation is a series of questions, answers and evaluations focused on your strengths, job skills, education and other relevant elements. The results of the comprehensive evaluation are used to determine your ability to find and keep a job in your local labor market and what WorkFirst activities will help you prepare for and find work. It includes:
(i) An employability evaluation with your case manager, discussing important issues that can affect your ability to find a job, like educational background, employment history, child care, family violence or substance abuse. Your case manager will also ask you a few questions to find out if you might benefit from engaging in financial literacy activities such as money management training or any other type of credit counseling service. If so, we will tell you how to get this information.
(b) You and your case manager and/or social worker use the information and recommendations from the comprehensive evaluation to create or modify your individual responsibility plan, adding activities that help you become employable.
(c) After your comprehensive evaluation, you may receive more assessments to find out if you need additional services. For example, you may receive an educational skills assessment and/or evaluation after referral to an education and training activity.
