A Maryland job-seeker application says she needs a temporary carer, and an employer that will pay her to care for her, to apply for a job.
The application was submitted on February 23, 2017.
The application says Marysons application for an unemployment assistance program was denied, and that she was not able to get an employer to pay her for the time she is in her care, according to a transcript provided by the state.
The state says she is eligible for unemployment assistance through the Maryland Workforce Development Agency.
Marysons employment services manager, Rebecca Littrell, said in an email to The Next Go that the state “has been made aware of this error, which will be corrected in the next state-wide application,” the transcript said.
Littrell added that the application will be reviewed and that it will be posted in the appropriate section of the application page.
The application for temporary carers in Maryland is not the only one that states have had trouble with, the transcript showed.
Another application from March 17, 2017, states that the applicant has a disability and “does not meet the qualifications of a caregiver for temporary employment.”
The application says that the worker is in need of an assistance with basic necessities.
Maryland officials have said that if someone is applying for an assistance program, they must have an income at or below 125% of the federal poverty level.
The job is for two years and pays up to $10,000 per year.
