In accordance with regulations promulgated by the department, each social services district shall establish procedures to identify, investigate and resolve potential cases of fraud, misrepresentation or inadequate documentation prior to determining an applicant's eligibility for public assistance.  Such procedures shall not delay the determination of eligibility for assistance beyond the timeframes established in law or regulation for such determination, including emergency assistance.  Each social services district shall submit to the department a plan describing such procedures in such form and at such times as the department may require.  Such department regulations shall include, but not be limited to, standards governing referrals by the district to its fraud detection unit, and shall set forth indicators to be used, in part, to govern such referrals based on the individual's employability, employment history, or prior incidence of overpayments attributable to client conduct.
