A notice which explains an applicant's and recipient's right to receipts upon request shall be prominently posted by the county welfare department at the location where the document is to be delivered. The receipt shall be issued at the time the document is delivered.
(1) A county which maintains a system of logging hand delivered documents is exempt from the requirements of this subdivision.
(2) County welfare departments which provide receipts for all hand delivered documents without a request by an applicant or recipient shall be exempt from the notice posting requirement.
(b) The county welfare department shall only provide receipts for documents which have been delivered in person to a county welfare department employee other than the applicant's or recipient's regularly assigned caseworker and to the location in which or through which the caseworker conducts his or her business. Only one receipt is required for monthly income reports and their supporting documents which are hand delivered. Monthly income reports and other requested documents which have been mailed shall not be subject to the requirements of this section.
