Time frames.









(1) Information about training benefits will be included in the informational notice mailed or e-mailed to you at the time you file your application for unemployment benefits (see WAC 192-120-010). For purposes of subsections (2) and (3) of this section, the informational notice is considered your notification of the eligibility requirements for the training benefits program. (2) Submitting a training plan. Except for dislocated workers eligible under RCW 50.22.155 (2)(a)(i), you have ninety calendar days to submit a training plan to the department for approval, beginning on the date you are notified by the department about the eligibility requirements for training benefits. For new claims, the deadline will be ninety-five calendar days from the date your application for benefits is filed, which represents ninety days plus five days for the informational notice to reach you if sent by regular mail. (3) Enrollment in training. Except for dislocated workers eligible under RCW 50.22.155 (2)(a)(i), you must be enrolled in training within one hundred twenty calendar days, beginning on the date you are notified about the eligibility requirements for training benefits. For new claims, the deadline will be one hundred twenty-five calendar days from the date your application for benefits is filed, which represents one hundred twenty days plus five days for the informational notice to reach you if sent by regular mail. (4) If you are a dislocated worker eligible under RCW 50.22.155 (2)(a)(i), you must submit a training plan and enroll in training prior to the end of your benefit year. (5) Except for dislocated workers eligible under RCW 50.22.155 (2)(a)(i), these time frames may be waived for good cause. For purposes of this section, "good cause" includes but is not limited to situations where: (a) You were employer attached, including being on standby or partially unemployed, when you filed your claim for unemployment benefits but your attachment to your employer subsequently ended; (b) You acted or failed to act on authoritative advice directly from department or partner staff upon which a reasonable person would normally rely; (c) You were incapacitated due to illness or injury or other factors of similar gravity; or (d) Other factors which would effectively prevent a reasonably prudent person, as defined in WAC 192-100-010, facing similar circumstances, from meeting the time frames established under this section. (6) If you return to work, and subsequently become unemployed, the time frames described in subsections (2) and (3) begin with the date you file your additional claim for benefits.
