A county department of job and family services shall issue a member of an assistance group participating in Ohio works first a waiver that exempts the member from a requirement of the Ohio works first program if the county department determines that the member has been subjected to domestic violence and requiring compliance with the requirement would make it more difficult for the member to escape domestic violence or unfairly penalize the member. A waiver shall specify the particular requirement being waived. A waiver may not exempt the member from the time limit on participating in the Ohio works first program established by division (B) of section 5107.18 of the Revised Code. A waiver shall be effective for a period of time the county department determines necessary. The county department shall redetermine the member's need for the waiver not less often than a period of time specified in rules adopted under section 5107.05 of the Revised Code.
