excess of the provisions of this article, shall return the fee or the
excess portion thereof within seven days after receiving a demand
therefor.

2. Failure to report: If a job applicant accepts employment and
thereafter fails to report for work, the gross fee charged to such

applicant accepts employment and fails to report for work, no fee shall
be charged to the employer.
