2. “Temporary employee” means an employee assigned to work for the clients of a temporary help firm; and
3. “Good cause” means a reason that is significant and would compel an average reasonable worker, who would otherwise want a suitable job assignment with a client of the temporary help firm, to fail to contact the temporary help firm, to refuse an offered assignment, or to be unavailable for assignment; and
4. “Suitable job assignment” means work, either full-time or part-time for one or more days or portions thereof, that is in keeping with the education, training, experience, and ability of the individual to perform.
