Do I have to participate in the Workfare program?

Under state law and the Welfare Guidelines of the City, any recipient of assistance may be required to work for the City or an appropriate local human service agency at any available bona fide job that is within his/her capacity (RSA 165:31) for the purpose of reimbursement of benefits received.  Participants in the workfare program are not considered employees of the municipality, and any work performed by workfare participants does not give rise to any employee-employer relationship between the recipient/workfare participant and the City.
