Guidelines for the Acceptance of Changes to the QC Questionnaire

 

  1. Purpose. To provide guidelines for the acceptance of changes to the QC questionnaire.

  2. References. ET Handbook No. 395, page VI-3.

  3. Background. ET Handbook No. 395 requires State Employment Security Agencies (SESAs) to submit proposed changes of the QC Claimant Questionnaire to the Regional Office for review prior to implementation. The proposed questionnaires are then sent along with appropriate Regional office comments from the Regional office to the National office for final review and approval prior to implementation. To date, the criteria for determining whether or not proposed changes will be acceptable have not been provided. These criteria have now been defined and should be used to guide revisions.

  4. Guidelines. The following general guidelines will be used during the review of proposed changes to the QC Claimant Questionnaire. As the mandatory QC Program continues to evolve, suggestions will be entertained for additions or deletions to these guidelines.

    These guidelines are approved by OMB under 1205-0245, which expires July 1989.

  5. Actions Required. This information should be supplied to appropriate QC staff.

  6. Inquiries. Inquiries should be directed to appropriate Regional office staff.
