(1) The department shall evaluate each application and make a determination as to:

(a) whether the application is complete and accurate; and

(b) the amount of the reimbursement.

(2) If the department is satisfied that an employer's application is complete and accurate, the department will issue the reimbursement subject to funding.

(3) Because funding is limited, consistent with the department's intent to encourage as many different employers as possible to hire students in high-quality work-based learning opportunities, the department reserves the right to defer reimbursement for multiple students employed by a single employer. In the event of deferral, the department will notify the employer in writing. Applications for which review has been deferred will be considered and evaluated on a quarterly basis as funding allows.

(4) If the department denies an application for reimbursement, the employer may submit an amended application.
