  • ETA Issues Additional Planning Guidance for FY 2015 Unemployment Insurance State Quality Service Plan; Emphasizes Reemployment of Claimants

    The Employment and Training Administration has issued Unemployment Insurance Program Letter 21-14 -- Additional Planning Guidance for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Unemployment Insurance (UI) State Quality Service Plan (SQSP). The UIPL notes, in part:

    Reemployment of UI Claimants

    Reemployment of UI claimants remains a top priority for the entire workforce system, including UI. The UI program is one of the required programs in the one-stop delivery system under the WIA and must work collaboratively with workforce system programs to fully connect UI claimants to the full range of reemployment services delivered through American Job Centers, online, and through rapid response.

    Through initiatives such as Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments and ETA`s more recent work with five pilot states implementing strategies to achieve improved UI connectivity with the public workforce system and improved reemployment service delivery strategies, states are encouraged to continue to make progress in this area. ETA will focus significant technical assistance resources this year to leverage the work of the five pilot states and to support the next wave of states to implement enhanced reemployment strategies for UI claimants. ETA will also continue to work with states that have Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment grants to identify and share "best practices" and develop a more uniform national assessment program.

    ETA is particularly interested in strategies that use data to better target reemployment services and more quickly and precisely connect UI beneficiaries to job opportunities and/or services that will speed their return to employment.

    As states develop their SQSPs, they should consider including innovative and robust reemployment strategies that are jointly developed in collaboration with workforce system partners, including the WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker programs and the Wagner-Peyser funded Employment Service program. These strategies may include:

    Developing intake processes that produce a more complete profile on UI claimants so that they can be targeted more efficiently with reemployment services and job referrals;

    Connecting UI claimants as quickly as possible to the public labor exchange systems so that they can start receiving job referrals immediately; and

    Using ongoing risk assessment to determine whether UI claimants are having a difficult time finding a job and require additional services.

    ETA recommends that UI program staff collaborate with these partners to ensure the strategies reflect the agreement(s) made and are documented in each partner`s strategic plan.
