To avoid conflict of interest and insure privacy, special handling is given to Tennessee Department of Human Services employees and their relatives who apply for and receive Family Assistance benefits.  These special procedures are:

 

(a)   The District Director must be made aware of applications, recertifications or case reviews for Family Assistance from an employee of the Department or from an employee’s mother, father, grandparents, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, or member of the employee’s household.  Such actions are to be processed by a first-line Supervisor or other person designated by the District Director.

 

(b)   To assure the employee’s privacy and the integrity of those cases, each county should develop a plan for limited access to these cases by other staff members and the employee himself.  Such cases may be assigned to a special caseload number in the ACCENT System.
