Applicant Refuses to Verify Self-Employment Income
Q I am trying to determine the eligibility of an applicant who has been working as a hairstylist since January 2008. She is not self-employed; she is an employee of the hair salon. Her employer completed our third-party verification, but refused to give us a detailed income printout. In addition, the applicant does not have any pay stubs. Our state agency requires that we obtain either a printout or pay stubs. The employer told us that the applicant receives 50 percent commission and 100 percent of the tips she makes.
